TRUE ACCEPTANCE

True happiness can only exist in acceptance - for most of my life, I have lived in pain, anger, denial, anguish, depression, oppression - you name it! I just never fully felt happy in my self. The day I finally felt accepted was the day I became truly happy.

I did not need to be defined the norms, rules, standards and regulations of this world. I no longer felt I had to be validated by other women. I no longer felt the need to conform to the lies of this world. I knew that the only acceptance I ever needed was from him. No longer do I spend my time waiting for people to call me valuable nor adequate! I now see me! I now see my worth! I love me! But most of all, I am free to be me.
