Three strikes against me and I’m still standing. I’m still fighting and not leaving. I’m not going away. What’s wrong with me? In my heart and in my mind, I get stronger. I fight battles with myself so what makes you think that a battle with you would be so tough? Maybe it’s because you’re weak. Whatever I have that doesn’t kill me only makes me stronger. And there’s nothing there threatening you. So, you’re wondering why I keep fighting. Internally, I’m being beat up. Beat down. Throw up. Spun around. Dropped. Kicked. And ignored. What is it that makes you keep going? Just because I have three strikes against me doesn’t mean that I’m out of the game. It just means that I’m going to play harder. I’m going to be what I thought I never could. I’m going to make it through. I am somebody worthy of importance. I am important. I have three strikes against me but guess what? I’m still standing.
