Hero

I am my own hero. I have survived a lot of bad things and even bad people in my life starting when I was 9 years old. And what I learned is that they just are like sandpaper to my character and I'm shining like gold.

I know it's a pretty bold statement to say since clearly I'm not a perfect person. I've done bad things too but it hasn't done anything much to my person because nothing sacred lives on top. I have been able to keep myself inside my little shell and I'm proud of it. 

I thought I met people who I considered heroes at that time. But there were not. They were just deceitful people who lied and cheated their way just so they can have what they want. They did some really bad things and just hurt me for a while. They were irresponsible and didn't think of their obligations. It's sad but I have to move on. Life goes on. And if they don't want to be a part of their kids' life, then be it. I will be a hero to my kids. They can keep their money and spend it on themselves. 

The greatest love of all is indeed the love of self.
