So freaking what? I ask you.
How's my life and the way I choose to live it any of your business?
Most of us don't know how to mind our business, I'm guilty of it sometimes, but it's not about the other person now, it's about you.
To everyone reading this today, no matter what your situation is, I hope when people remind you of it, you're confident enough in who you are to say 'SO BLADDY WHAT?'
Despite your circumstances, the bad decisions you made, wrong turns you took, despite your anger, pain and disappointment, despite your failures and successes, despite what anyone thinks or says about you, I hope that when you look in the mirror, you love the person staring right back at you.
I hope you find the goodness inside of you and wrap it around you to protect you from all the craziness around you.
I hope you don't live in regret.
I hope you don't wish you could change your life.
I hope you don't wish you were somebody else.
I hope you appreciate God's work in your life
I hope you discover who your true friends are.
I hope you find that your strength supersedes your weakness.
I hope you find that you've done more good than bad.
I hope you realise that people carrying bad stories about you don't know shit about you.
I hope you believe in your strength and in your truth
I hope you discover who you really are and master yourself.
I hope you realise you only have one life to live and living it to the fullest is the best way to do it.
I hope you face your fears, because that's the easiest way to gain strength, courage, and confidence in who God has made you.
I hope you love the person you are despite what people say is wrong about you.
If for instance you're attracted to men and you're a man, people like me will talk.
I hope you find the strength inside of you to face me and say 'I like men Linda, so what? SO BLADDY WHAT?"
