From the time I realized I was different, my parents never let me believe I couldn’t be anything I wanted. My gran always told me I am the way I am for a reason. Now years later, my chosen siblings have taken to putting me back straight when I falter or lose my perspective. I always say my CP is a monster that lives inside me & sometimes it gets out of its cage. My frustration comes out my tear ducts. I cry in front of very few people, but knowing that in my cell phone are the numbers of people who I can call and sob to is beyond comforting. Lately, people have said I’m remarkable. Truth is I’m not. I’m just a woman who is trying to grow into the best woman I can be and who has to overcome challenges to get there.
I am blessed to have a village to help me do that. If I am remarkable it is because I was blessed with a spirit that knows how to fight (hence the polar bear), and people who stand with me & hold me up when I literally can’t do anymore. Sometimes, they sit on the floor with me holding me tight while I scream in pain. Sometimes they let me yell, and sometimes with a push they inspire me to be better. No matter what they are always there for me, and that is what is truly remarkable. Thank you all! I couldn’t do what I do without you.
I love each and every one of you more than I can convey in a blog post. It is my absolute pleasure to give you all back what you give me: unconditional love and support. We prove daily that family is more than blood. I want nothing more than to make y’all proud. I hope I do. We can handle anything life throws at us because we handle it together. Each one of you makes me better. It is my privilege to hopefully help make each of you better as well. I’m a blessed sister.
