Forcing My Point Of View

Reflection

10.21.13

When it came to engaging with people with opposing views it was hard for me to be secure with myself & my beliefs.
There’s always this underlying need to “prove my point.” 
Soon I’m flustered and frustrated because "I just need them to understand that..."
It’s the ego. I know that.
It’s my insecurity. I get that too.
So! I vow today to belong to myself.
To come to a place where I feel secure in my body.
So much so that I feel no need to argue when people dismiss my lifestyle or beliefs.
So much so that I can live without worrying, "I hope they don’t think that..."
I have to belong to myself,
or I’ll feel lost everywhere.
