Take a Stand

So often in today's culture people are scared to be who they truly are. Whether it's due to bullying, judgement, fear, etc. I do not know. It depends on the individual. We are made differently, no person is exactly the same. So if we all are different why do we judge people for being different? It is almost as if you are judging yourself at the same time. We are all different so in that case judging someone because they are "different" really does not make much sense. We should not be fearful of being different.
I will start myself.

I am the girl who doesn't talk much.
I am the girl who is scared easily.
I am the girl who is afraid to hurt anybody.
I am the girl who keeps secrets.
I am the girl who hides.
I am the girl who over thinks.
I am the girl who fears too much.
I am the girl who hurts.
I am the girl who craves inspiration.
I am the girl who has watched herself transform.
I am the girl who loves nature.
I am the girl who loves to sit alone and think.
I am the girl who stands up for her beliefs.
I am the girl who tries to be the best.
I am the girl who strives for approval.
I am the girl who is trying to gain patience.
I am the girl who hardly anyone really knows.
I am the girl who wants to be noticed.
I am the girl who doesn't think she is beautiful.
I am the girl who lacks confidence.
I am the girl who keeps her true story to herself and God.
I am the girl behind these words. I am Amy Smith. I am different. Say what you want to say about me.
