“There comes a time when you have to stand up and shout:
This is me damn it! I look the way I look, think the way I think,
feel the way I feel, love the way I love!
I am a whole complex package. Take me… or leave me.
Accept me – or walk away! Do not try to make me feel like
less of a person, just because I don’t fit your idea of who
I should be and don’t try to change me to fit your mold.
If I need to change, I alone will make that decision.
When you are strong enough to love yourself 100%,
good and bad – you will be amazed at the
opportunities that life presents you.”
