But you do deserve it.


sometimes I ask myself why

why did i let myself get this bad
why did i let this happen
i can't answer myself because
in the end,
i started to believe i deserved it
things could be always be worse
and it's true
i woke up today
i'm healthy and alive
but i am not perfect
i will never be perfect
i don't want to be perfect anymore
i will mess things up
i will feel defeated sometimes
the words that were once thrown at me
to make me feel less of a person
to make me hate my appearance 
have not defined who i am
what defines me is how i see myself
i started saying i was beautiful,
even though no one has ever told me that
i started saying i was smart
even though no one has ever told me that
and something incredible happened,
i started to believe it
