Tell Me Again

Tell me again,

You didn’t believe in me?

Didn’t think I had it in me?

Never believed I would succeed?

That’s funny.

I mean, couldn’t you see that I am unique?

That my spirit is indomitable.

That I have an unwavering belief in myself.

That greatness was always a part of me?

Were you jealous because the moment you saw me, you knew I didn’t walk, I didn’t run, and I would never get caught in the rain because I soared above the clouds?

Didn’t you see you could never take my happiness from me?

That your opinion of me never mattered.

Every step I take confirms who I am.

I waste not one day.

I am not a passenger of destiny.

I take hold of my future, motivated to be better tomorrow than I am today.

I have never regretted taking a chance.

Because my failures do not define

me, instead, I am respected for my resolve because failure did not break me.

I embrace the journey and keep moving forward.

My dreams do not end when I wake; they begin.

So tell me again, you didn’t believe in me?

Funny.

Your opinion of my happiness is not required

Can you look at me and judge me because I exude confidence and I am happy? The simple answer is no. Your opinion is not required, your approval is not needed for me to be happy. What you must understand is that I am not confident because of a sense of arrogance. I am confident because I have a healthy belief in myself and my abilities.  It is this belief that allows me the freedom to know anything is possible when I put my mind to it and there is a world of possibilities waiting for me to take hold of them.  Knowing this makes me happy and I have earned the right to be. That is something neither you nor anyone else can take from me. I will not allow the negativity of others to sap the positivity that I exude. I will not let your unhappiness thrust on to me. I am who I am because of my belief in myself.  You can not judge me and you never will because I have already judged myself to be worthy of the happiness I enjoy.
