and maybe some honesty
the truth is: a lot of the time i don’t feel so confident about the way i look.
when i look in my reflection i see pain and sadness and fear. sometimes, i even see the part of me i hate. and sometimes the weight of all these things coupled with my emotions feel unbearable.
but sometimes, i look at myself and i see potential and happiness and honesty and beauty.
today, i felt beautiful. so i’ll take it. i’ll leave the forgiveness and everything else for another day.
