Embers of hope spark within my heart, Daring to wish for a semblance of change Yet again, my expectations are extinguished As quickly as they came to fruition, A withering flame trying desperately to maintain life
You are amazing, gorgeous, and worthy just as you are. You don't need to change to suit the expectations and standards of others. If they can't appreciate you for who you are, then they don't deserve you. Because you're beautiful just the way you are now. Remember that, and know you're worth it. You're worthy of love, respect, and so many other wonderful things, solely for being who you are.
That same hand, Holding me back, Forcing me down, For all these years Our fingers entwined, Binding me for life No longer, I refuse
Be kind and respectful to others. Treat them as you would want to be treated by other people. You shouldn’t sacrifice so much of yourself or be kind to the extent that it has a negative impact on your well-being. But, there are many ways people can be kind and considerate to others without having to do all that much. These methods could include something as simple as giving a greeting, wave, or smile. And while those actions may seem small, they can make all the difference in a person’s day, week, or maybe even their entire life. You could brighten someone’s day or change their life by showing them a single gesture of kindness.
