The Day I Believed in Myself

The Day I Believed in Myself

I can’t remember when it happened, but one day I changed.

For most of my life, I’ve felt like a black sheep. When I was younger, I was a good student. Despite my undiagnosed learning disability and living with depression and panic I managed to get into (and graduate from) New York University with a decent GPA.

Still, I wasn’t able to find a career and had a difficult time staying in anything that remotely resembled an office job.

I spent my 20s feeling like a failure.

I believed I was worthless.

I believed that I would never succeed.

One day that changed.

Something snapped.

I stopped hating myself.

And I started loving myself.

I started to see the good…

and embrace that maybe…

I had something to give the world.

Yes, there will be days of self doubt, but…

in remembering to love who I am, I am able to truly love other people…


I am realizing that…

this black sheep isn’t so bad…

she is just learning…

to be herself…

and who that person is…

deserves to be loved.

    I’m still struggling with “I’m not so bad,” but know I’ll get there someday. Thank you for the inspiration.
