Life wasn’t always easy. I was tiny with a big head.
I was awkward and dorky. I was the kid who was friends with everyone, but also made fun of by almost everyone.
I never fit in and always felt misunderstood. I tried covering that, along with all the other emotions I was trying to process, with humour. Always cracking jokes and making everyone else laugh – when so often I was crying on the inside.
Now that I’m older, and somewhat wiser, I have grown to be a bit more comfortable in my skin.
I’ve learned to love myself, imperfections and all.
