My heart was full of sadness for a long long time.The voices in my head used to make me feel like dirt. My mind was confused and unsteady. I agreed to everything everybody said. And disagreed with nothing. I never though about myself. All my feelings were covered with a polite smile.
Finally about a year ago I was determined to find myself and I did. I blocked my ears and my heart. I listened to who i wanted to listen and agreed with who I wanted to agree. I voiced my disagreement. I distanced myself from negative and conniving people. And I smiled when my heart wanted to smile.
I felt happy. I felt sad too.
I needed to agree and disagree with family. And family did not want to be disagreed with. Disdain showed in people.
I had freed my heart. And it was soaring.
Gracias. My Abuela. You taught me the world. The good and the bad. And made me find the confidence to be me.
