Me, like it or not

I have been thinking a lot lately. And I just want to say something tonight. I am very frustrated with people and the way they treat each other. Why do we hate each other because we are different? Why do our differences tear us apart? Why can't we accept that we do not think the same or believe the same and move on? I want everyone to know that I am ME. And I like it. I am not about to change, no matter how much you want me to. I answer only to myself and to God. This is me, take it or leave it. I love my children, I love my husband, I love God. And I am happy with those things. I love people, I love my friends. I love to help people and serve where I can. I have so much more in my life that some people in the world and I want to share. I am terribly shy, but I love getting to know people and learn from them. There are so many things I can learn from the people in my life. I know am not perfect. I have many many weaknesses. But, believe it or not, I also have many strengths. I am a good person. I try hard. I work hard. There are many people out there who don't think so and to them I say "Go to Hell." I am tired of letting other people's opinions of me color my opinion of myself. I deserve to be treated with respect. Someday I may be brave enough to let go of the people that only bring me down. For now I will work on myself and my own weaknesses. That's all I can do. We'll see what changes come of it.

Thanks for letting me rant
