My Biggest Mistake

This photograph blew right by me on my news feed today.

It’s true, and I know I’m not everyone’s cup of tea. But I am a wonderful friend, loyal, caring, empathetic, supportive, and encouraging. I will cry with you, hear you out, mourn with you, and do everything I can to help you pick up whatever pieces you’ve lost along the way. That’s just me, I care about people.

To my detriment, I am also easily hurt. I know exactly what I bring to the table. I make mistakes every single day. This picture, it’s true. It’s one of my biggest mistakes.

In spite of it all, the heartache, and personal turmoil, I have decided not to let the world change who I am. There are so many wonderful people out there in this world. There are also wonderful people who don’t always agree with me but understand the value of live and let live.

I’m not looking back and I refuse to let this world keep me from smiling and making the best of every day. It doesn’t matter if it’s close friends, acquaintances, or even family members, because they are people too, and they have their own struggles and situations to figure out.

With a genuine smile on my face, I am surrendering it all to God, and I’m not looking back.
