A World That Never Fit Me.

I could never really figure out why I was so unhappy when everyone around me seemed so happy doing all the things with all the same people in all the same ways.

The more I tried to fit in, the more miserable I became.

So, instead of trying to blend in, make everyone else happy and be what the world thought I should be, I decided to start making myself happy and stop worrying what anyone else thought.
That’s when the miraculous feeling of peace started to come over me, with each step of my new journey…I started to get a little happier.

I wore what I wanted to wear, I ate, did and lived in the way I should have all along, and it was the most amazing sense of freedom I have ever experienced.

Sure, there’s people who don’t get me or approve of how I choose to live my life,

But then, they don’t have to.

They haven’t walked in my shoes and seen my struggles to know why I choose this.

What matters is learning to love myself, evolving my mindset and stepping out of the labels and boxes the world tried to fit me in. Maybe I don’t always know where I’m going or even how I’ll get through my day, but that’s the beauty of life.
Living in the moment, learning through the journey and getting stronger, wiser and better.
Maybe I’ll stumble and fall, but I’ll keep getting up and dusting myself off.

I’m not perfect and I don’t want to be.
That’s for the movies and people that like to pretend.

Give me the real, authentic and gritty version of life, there’s nothing else quite like it.

It’s my life, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
