Uniqueness given but too insecure to discover it.
You are inferior, they said. Alone. Not enough.
My tries to adjust failed bitterly, my opinions tossed by winds and waves.
The illusion of earning my affection through meeting others expectations crushed me.
The voices became louder.
Pulling back from my outer world, trying to create a perfect one in my mind, didn't work.
All I felt was a crazy mess in my inside, growing bigger while my attempts to fight my way out of it failed.
All of it changed with a small whisper.
And as soon as I started listening, it became louder.
Louder than all the other voices. Louder than my own insecurities. With a mighty roar it silenced my storm.
One word and it was done.
Then gently and loving, it began to tell me who I really was, who I really am.
Uniquely created to represent the One who created me.
My thoughts began to untangle, my heart to heal. Slowly discovering the world inside of me through the eyes of the Artist.
My true self is what I found.
My true self is what I find.
The start of a lifelong journey.
I fell in love with it.
He has started and we will continue.
