I remember while growing up, I would always apologize for being myself. I thought that if people didn’t like me that it was my fault. And that I should change to fit what they wanted.

Think about that….I would say….

“I’m sorry. I’m so sorry for being myself.”

I actually apologized for being myself. I apologized for being what made me happy. I thought something was wrong with me. I thought I wasn’t okay. I couldn’t understand why I deserved this.

Why I deserved to be hated?

I didn’t understand why people couldn’t accept me? It hurt so much. And what sucked, was no one was there to ever tell me that I shouldn’t apologize for who I am.

So I continued to think that I should  apologize.

If you’re out there and reading this. And you have never had anyone to tell you to never apologize for being yourself. Well then I’m going to tell you. Because I don’t want you to ever be sorry for being yourself. And you don’t have to be. If someone doesn’t like you for you, that’s there lose and not yours. Because it’s their fault that they can’t see how precious and amazing you are. So please, don’t ever say sorry for being yourself.  Because I love you for you, and maybe I don’t know you personally but I have hope that you’re amazing and I hope you can see that too.
