If I were you...

You are a girl, you're beautiful, intelligent, sexy, attractive, lively, funny, friendly, witty, charming and hardworking. You have a good heart, you love God and you love others. But you don't know what you have. You think low of yourself, you're insecure, you hate your life, and you think it sucks.

If I were you,
I'll look in the mirror every morning and tell myself I'm beautiful. I'll wear a smile all the time and tell myself life is beautiful. Whether I get smile or a frown in return will not matter. Afterall it takes more from me to frown than  to smile. I'll love myself and be happy. Afterall happiness is good food for the soul. I'll channel my energy into positive things and thoughts. I'll do the things that make me happy, I'll be selfless. I'll be a good friend, daughter, sister, neighbour and whatever. In words and in actions, I'll be a lady. I'll be myself and not envy anyone's life. They're probably more screwed than I'll ever know.

I'll never look down on myself or call myself ugly because anyone thinks so. I'll not let friends or enemies dictate the pace of my life. I'll not do anything because anyone is doing it. What if I'm not supposed to? I'll not wear anything because others are wearing it. What if it doesn't suit me? I'll not bear grudges. They'll only add to my weight. I'll not go out of my way to stay stick-thin. I'll not stick my fingers down my throat after my food. What if I fall ill? I'll not wear six-inch high stilletoes when am more comfortable in sneakers. What if I fall? I'll not wear 10 layers of make-up everyday. I don't see the need. I'll not seek attention at all costs. I'll not wear the skimpiest clothes or speak loudly or unnecessarily. It communicates insecurity and low self-esteem. I'll not make out with lots and lots of guys. I don't see what I stand to gain. I'll not have sex for material gains or favours. I'll not sleep with my boss for recommendation. Why don't I do my work and hope he is pleased? I won't sleep with my dad's age mate for a black berry torch or brazillian hair. I'll never be desperate for anything. Or better still, I'll never show my desperation to people. They are likely to take advantage of me. I'll not live by anyone's standards. I have mine!

I'll never ever forget that I'm me. Living like someone else will never take away my problems. It'll only increase them. This is what I'll do if I were you. But I'm not you, I'm me. I don't want to be you. It sucks to be you. I hate your life. I love mine. It sucks to be you. So I just want to be one thing>>>>>> ME!!!!
