As a black woman, I'm learning I don't have to be strong all the time. I'm learning that it's ok to not be ok. To say that I'm not ok. Learning it's good to ask for help if you need it. I'm learning that it's ok to dream and it's ok to pursue those dreams.
As a woman, I'm learning more about my body. I'm learning what it means to be a woman and how it affects everything around me. Learning to love myself and care for myself. Learning to love others and show that love to others. Learning to let others love me.
As a human, I'm learning that it's ok to be afraid. I'm learning that it's ok to be brave. I'm learning to stand. To stand for myself and for what I believe. Learning that I'm still learning. I'm learning that it's ok to be different. That it's ok to be me. I am learning that growth is good. I'm learning that growth can hurt sometimes. I'm learning that growth can feel lonely but I'm not alone.
