STRENGTH OF A WOMAN

A Woman’s Strength Isn’t Just About How Much She Can Handle Before She Breaks.
It’s Also About How Much She Must Handle After She’s Broken.

You can find better than me,worse than me,but you’ll never find someone like me.
I don’t need a perfect life,I just want to be happy,surrounded by good friends
who love me for who i am.

JUST BEING ME

I might not be someone’s first choice,but i am a great choice.

I may not be rich,but i am valuable.

I don’t pretend to be someone i’m not,because i’m good at being me.

I might not be proud of some of the things i’ve done in the past,but i am proud of who i am today.

I may not be perfect,but i don’t need to be.Take me as i am,or watch me as i walk away.
