I am one of the many considered strange
But when I look around
I see the normal people are the ones who are deranged
This is a confession
I used to have a crazy niche
They don’t even exist
Welcome to a new day of persistence
Gather round my friends
This is just the beginning of label resistance
I will never get on my knees
I will never bow down
To a man who is a thief
Nor to whom that wears a crown
Stay strong my friends. If you are labeled, consider the source. To be different than others is to be human. Try to embrace your niche. Love yourself and don’t feel guilty for taking care of yourself first.
I got caught up in the torture of labeling by others. Now I can see that although I struggle I am far from being weak. God made only one of me. He made you too. A spark of the devine. If we would reject the negatives and focus on the positive things about ourselves, disregarding the voices that tell us we aren’t enough, we just might flourish.
Me… I am giving it a try. I have nothing to lose and everything to gain. I can stave off the horrific thoughts about myself by rejecting them as false. If God loves me, why can’t I? I can! I am 42 on the 17th of August and I had to have a near death experience to realize that the only person who has been torturing myself is me. I allowed myself to wallow in my own sorrow. No more!
I know I have mental illness but I am not to blame. No more than a person with a heart condition or diabetes. I have a physician. I am well. I can do better still. Maybe some day I can even get back to work again. 😃 I miss work so much!
I guess the message is that there is hope for all of us. No matter how bad things get, they can get better. We should lean on the ones who understand our faults and our abilities. We need to speak to people who understand what we are going through and help to lift them up as well.
I will leave it there for now. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog.
I hope you all have a beautiful day.
