I am vulnerable.
I worry about what people think.
I let them control me.
I make plans that I don’t follow through.
I have dreams that don’t come true.
I put everything above them.
I think they are unimportant.
I think I that they are too big.
I think that I am too small.
I am vulnerable.
Respected Life means so much to me.It is a part of my dream.
I will explain why.
When I was growing up, I did not have much.I watched my parents be belittled,bashed, and betrayed.
I watched them struggle. I watched them cry. I watched them smile.
They taught me how to live. They taught me how to fight. They taught me how to inspire.
My family has been without. We still are without, but we are happy. We won’t stop fighting. We won’t stop smiling.
My parents always tell me to strive for the best. They want me to pass every test.
I am vulnerable.
I don’t want my family to struggle. I don’t want them to cry.I want them to have the world. I throw myself into my studies. I forget about everything else. I am only focused on getting better. I forget about fun. I forget about friends. I forget about dreams.
I am vunerable.
I just want to help. I want to help more than my family. I want to help more than the poor. I want to help more than myself.I want to help the teen who doesn’t know how to fix her hair. I want to help the single dad or mom who is having trouble paying the bills. I want to help the diabetic on dialysis. I want to help anyone who wants to make difference.
I know that I don’t have the popularity of a celebrity. My blog is not a “top” blog, but I believe that it can help others. I believe that everybody is somebody. If I can make one person smile, then I have succeeded.
Well, what if I don’t succeed? That is the question that I often ask myself. This is why I run away. This is why I’m inconsistent.
This is why I am vulnerable.
This is why I need to change.
This is why I will change.
This is why I am strong.

Dreams are essential to human life. They keep us going. They keep us alive. They give us hope. So, why are we so quick to abandon them? Why are we so quick to devalue what matters most? Why do we discourage others? Most would say it’s life but I say it’s fear. We are afraid to be successful. We find bad in anything. We feed our brains with unnecessary drama. We can recite meaningless lyrics, but we can not take time to pursue what we really believe in. We run when we get close to success and encourage others to do the same. We are afraid to take chances. We are told that our dreams are unreachable. We are laughed at. We are teased for trying.
They laugh because they are cowards.
They tease because they are envious.
They don’t matter.
You do and so do your dreams.
Following dreams is a lot easier said than done. You have to deal with the haters, the naysayers, and the critics. You have to deal with yourself.You will become your own worst enemy.You will doubt yourself. You will find reasons not to make your dreams come true. You are going to have to ignore yourself. It’s going to be hard. Anything that is worth anything is hard.
You are going to fall.Get back up.
There will be tears, smile.
There will be laughs, enjoy them.
There will be success, if you follow your dreams.
“”The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”- Eleanor Roosevelt
