I decided to choose this photo because I knew exactly who I was
I chose this photo because it was taken in the most blissful moment.
Can I share something with you?
I honestly have no clue who I am at this point.
I've lost touch with myself.
Yesterday I cried in the shower and had to cover my mouth
because the noises escaping my were louder than the running water.
I stood there letting the water fall on my skin
I stood there emotionless.
I realized something.
My hard work has always gone unnoticed.
I thought the work I put in was enough
but I was proved wrong by a beloved teacher.
Thank you for telling me I wasn't good enough.
I wanted to give up because of you.
Why try anymore?
That question ate at me for days.
During those days, I wasn't myself
Yet, no one noticed the change in my smile.
No one noticed my eyes watering with tears.
Thank you for checking up on me.
Through it all, I found the answer.
