If Wanting To Be Happy With Who I Am, And Who I Surround Myself With Is Wrong, Damn I Don't Want To Be Right.

I want positivity to ingulf me. I want to breathe it in, and wear it like a cape, because it's who I’m meant to be.

If Wanting To Be Happy With Who I Am, And Who I Surround Myself With Is Wrong, Damn I Don't Want To Be Right.

Every day is a new form of healing; a new layer that my heart sheds. Even when I have nothing to complain about, each day I find myself nitpicking something negative around me. I want to tell my brain to just slow down for a moment. I want my brain to realize that she's in charge of everything. If she's stressed, everything else will be too.

I want my heart to speed up for the right reasons. To get excited over accomplishments, and love, and life. I want my heart to stop stressing over the little things before she ends it all with a dramatic halt.

I want my hands to pick up a pen, and write until they hurt. To do what they love without a second thought because whether it's bad, or great, is only for them to decide. I want my lips to speak only of greatness. To shed light on everything that matters, and everything that needs to be heard. I want my feet to run. I want them to run everywhere, whether it's with holes in their shoes or designer loafers. I want my eyes to see only beauty. To look at everyone they pass with eyes of admiration and happiness, rather than eyes of judgment.

I want positivity to engulf me. I want to breathe it in and wear it like a cape because it's who I'm meant to be. I want to remind people of the sun. Warm, and inviting, and loved. I want to be that shift in my life, and everyone else's. That lasting impression who's words echoes daily in everyone's minds. I want to change not only for myself but for everyone around me. I want a lot of things. I guess I'm just high maintenance.

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.

It's a topic that needs to be talked about way more than it should, especially in today's world: mental health. Whether it be anxiety, depression or O.C.D.
