Hi friends, I’ve been thinking a lot about who I am as an individual… People who know me very well know that I am very confident in who I am, but sometimes it is difficult for me to get out there and show my true self. I’ve received a lot of criticism on my appearance and I think that is what holds me back sometimes (most of the time). I look like I’m 15, my voice has sort of a high pitch, some may say I’m as skinny as a twig, & I’m a shortie. All of that leads to, “You’re a mom? How old were you when you had your first child, 10?!”, “Are your kids adopted?”, “Awe, your sister/brother is cute!”, or I just simply get stared at, which is probably my least favorite! Most of the time, people don’t take me seriously because of my appearance. Sometimes, people just ignore what I have to say. It could be that I speak a little too low, or something, but all of this is a result of my experiences.
Who cares if I’m young & have two kids, they are doing very well & I’m taking care of my responsibilities. Who cares if I look like I’m 10, I’m going to look pretty good when I’m 50. Who cares if I’m skinnier than your pinky toe, I was just BORN THIS WAY! I didn’t know there was a requirement to look a specific way to be a mother or respected as an adult?
As human beings, we should all take time to think before we speak. Take time to actually consider someone else’s perspective before drawing our own conclusions and judging others. Take time to actually CARE about the other person and what they have to say!…
& That my friends, is my little rant of the day! Ahhhh, that feels gooooood! :P Haha! Thank you guys for listening!!! Stay positive, friends!
