When ever people ask me questions like, "How do you walk out of the house in that?" My response is always "Because my skin is thicker than the clothes on my back." People look and they judge. Some call me names and then some just look away. Its the price I pay for being myself. It's not always easy and sometimes I come up short. I can find myself embarrassed. Other times find myself thinking I would be better off alone.
Overcoming fear of judgment has been the struggle of my life. Each day that has passed I have grow a bit more and learned to love myself. But never in a million years did I ever see myself where I am today. Next to him...
Words will never be able to describe how much I love him. He swept me off my feet and placed me on his shoulders, and ever since that day I have never been the same. I became we and me became us. Sometimes it's hard being myself. Sometimes I wish my life was something else. But in those moments he never fails to lift me up and make me smile. This man is also my photographer. He takes all of my pictures and encourages me every step of the way. I thought it was time for everyone to meet my photographer, as he is much, much more than that to me. :D
