You are the same, no different as every man who stood before you in this place.
You subtly reinforce that we are not worth the time, the patience, the wait.
But I am.
I know I am worth it, and I'm not willing to stand here in this place and allow myself to feel the way I've felt so many times before.
Maybe thats not fair because it was them, and not you that reinforced it.
Maybe its not fair because you probably have no idea of the impact of your actions, or non actions.
But I am choosing not to budge or move on this issue. Its a non negotiable.
--To guard my heart and not open it unless you are someone who is confident enough to have patience, character, understanding, perceptiveness, and enduring love.
So today "nothing will happen unless I decide, because
I choose to be the best that I can be, I choose to be authentic in everything....
my past does not dictate who I am."
