I Am Who I Am Because

April 23, 2017

"I am fat because I eat my feelings."

"I am an athlete because I like being on a team."

"I am a ginger because I was born this way, I have red hair, I have many many freckles, and I burn like crazy."

"I am a mother because loss of a child can't rob me of that."

"I am weak because I am chronically ill."

"I am a librarian because I fight for literacy and access to information."

"I am a soulmate because my husband's love for me is unshakeable."

"I am a role model because my niece looks up to me."

"I am a jealous person because I can't seem to stop comparing myself to others."

"I'm nonbinary because I was born this way, not because I want to be different."

"I'm not good in school because of my mental illness."

"I love karate because I can't stand being fragile, I want to protect myself and others."

"I am a survivor because I have been through loss and abuse."
