It's not just who physically gave birth to you that made you who you are today, but the people you sit next to in class, the boy who destroyed your heart in eighth grade, but simply the people who were in your life for even the slightest second. But here's a personal thank you to all the people in my life or will be in my life.
To the people who left:
Thank you for leaving. Because of you I no longer have garbage in my life but I always have the constant reminder that I was not ever good enough for you. 99 problems, and I was one and that's okay because fake people aren't my problem anymore with you gone. When you left you made me the emotionally unstable, insecure girl I am today. I get nervous opening up to people and on edge and I can thank you for that. But today, you make me the strongest girl I've ever known. I wake up and put on makeup with that sense of confidence because "I am queen" -Allison Whitehead. And nobody's gonna take my crown.

To my family:
You became my first friends, my teacher, my role model, right at birth. You were all I knew, and essentially made me who I am today. When I didn't know who I was, you tried to understand me, and help me find my way. You made me the artist I am today with the endless coloring books and paints. I'll always admire you and thank you for tolerating me through the years and more to come.
To the people I have yet to meet:
You may see me at the store or the other side of the sidewalk on your way to class, and our connection depends on you. I have already been broken down and built up, so I'm not putting up with anything less than perfect. I don't need you if you aren't going to treat me like a princess because I'm worth it. Its your loss boo boo. Thanks for trying to hurt me but you aren't going to break down my wall.
To my roommates:
Thanks for tolerating my crap! My morning messes, my bad habits, and just me in general. Thank you for making sure I got home after the party and watching after me. Thank you for hugging me when I cried over that stupid boy, thank you for making sure I knew it wasn't me and it was him. Thank you for tolerating my shower singing and random dancing in my underwear. Basically, thank you.

To my cats:
Thank you for my very best friend. Thank you for being my midnight cuddles, my morning and even my mid-day cuddles. Thank you for not judging me and loving me unconditionally like nobody else. You gave me the happiness nobody else could in my time of need and I will always keep a special place for you in my heart.
To everyone in between:
You know who you are. Whether your the one who takes advantage of my kind heart, the one who encourages my mischevious mind, the one who cares. THANK YOU. Thank you for hurting me, for loving me, for making me the person I am today.
