I stumbled on to this quote recently and it truly represents how I feel about myself. I don’t want to come off as melodramatic…it’s more realistic really.
‘I am a world that cannot be explored in one day. I am not a place for cowards.’
I know who I am. I know that I’m not for the weak at heart, the easily frustrated or for quitters…or cowards. I also know that I’m worth the effort. The good I bring to the table far outweighs the bad. If someone scares easily…they may not think this is true, but that’s for them to decide, not me. What’s the Shrek line?
” Ogres are like onions! Layers. Onions have layers. Ogres have layers.
You get it? We both have layers.”
At first glance I probably come off as friendly, sweet, funny and happy. All really nice things. And I am ALL of those things. Trust me.
But I also have days where I’m riddled with anxiety and that makes me nervous, edgy, explosive and negative. All my energy is put into staying inside my skin.
I’m moody, loud, silly, quiet, helpful, emotional, deeply compassionate, strong, empathetic, obsessive, goofy, sensitive, honest, sarcastic and of course kind. (to name a few)
I can be the silliest, happiest person you’ve been around or someone you may want to slowly back away from. I cry and swear when I’m happy, scared, sad and mad. I can be jealous and envious. I laugh..hard…often at my own jokes.
I ‘m loyal to a fault. Once I love you, it will take something truly awful…or many awful things to make me stop.
I’m one of those people that others think they have pegged very quickly. They don’t. It’s ok. I don’t have anything to prove.
I’m an onion.
I am a world that cannot be explored in one day. I am not a place for cowards.
But I’m worth it.
(and so are you)
