Something everyone goes through in life. It takes time to shape the own body and mind to be the ultimate version of yourself, but one day you will realise that the day has finally come.

So many years I have tried to change myself into the woman I want to be

I’ve lost my way many times and I buried myself in a person that seemed okay for anyone to see


I have felt ashamed for things that I like to do 

So I kept things as a secret or simply hid them away, sometimes even from myself too 


I have been embarrassed of my body 

So I tried to hide it any way I could, tried to cover as much as possible from anybody


I have been afraid to say what’s in my head and heart

So I have been keeping it inside, while my wishes and opinions silently stayed back in the dark


I have been having a hard time been honest to myself

Always going down that same old road of caring about the view and thoughts of everybody else


I have felt like a failure and a nobody

Like there is nothing I could ever achieve in my life, like there was nothing left for me to try or to be


Now I’m looking backt at those moments I’ve fought through 

Seeing how far I’ve actually come, where I’m standing now and all the wonderful things I’ve done and wishes that have come true


I’m at a point in my life where I see my worth and my strength 

What I’m able to do when I put all my effort together, what I’m able to become no matter the duration or length


I’m not ashamed for things I like to do!

I’m not embarrassed of my body!

I’m not afraid to say what I want!

I’m being honest to myself!

I’m not a failure or a nobody!



I have opened my eyes to finally see

I am the imperfect version of myself and I’m somebody I’m utterly proud to be!

Be true to yourself and the rest will fall into place. Very good positive view of yourself.
