To The Person I Wish To Be

“I am brave, I am bruised, I am who I’m meant to be - this is me” -The Greatest Showman

To The Person I Wish To Be

I'm sorry.

I am so sorry that I have unfathomably failed you - so far

I still struggle with my worth or perhaps my anxiety does. My logic and anxiety often battle on who I am, where I'm going, and everything else between that.

I'm not a perfect friend. I can and have disappeared on people; I have ignored calls due to my own personal feelings and left messages unanswered. I don't intend to do these things. I truly don't.. it just, happened.

I say I failed you because I have not actualized how to become you.

I don't want to be without fault, that's a clearly idiotic notion, but I would like to find a way to be better. Every moment of growth is a step closer, right? To be less filled with anxiety and depressive thoughts, to feel love and happiness flow from my fingertips rather than bits of mania and sadness.

I failed, but I will not succumb to the sheer deepened lines of our thoughtlessness. My humanity is not equated by what I have yet to accomplish, but by what I am.

I am not looking for absolutes here. I know this road is long and treacherous - wouldn’t be life if it was simple.

I refuse to accept defeat. I refuse to stay in my pity and outnumber the many ways I have gone beyond failing you... wait... me.

I have disappointed myself for the last time. I will no longer shove my head in the sand - this is how I become you, regardless of what happens.

I Keep trying.

If I stop trying, all of this would have been moot. I am not here to quit. I am not here to give up this fight to be better, be less of the person who was shaken and shattered by an ex-lover who did not value them. I will not take the abuse of family and strangers about myself or the special dynamics of what makes me ultimately myself.

I will give this life everything I fucking have.

I’m currently the dash on my gravestone - this body will be returned and no longer mine. This life will be over and no longer available.

So I’m sorry that I disappointed us - but I will never give up trying. We... I, am worthy of so much more than a little sunshine.

I’m the whole damn sun.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
