What Do I Have to Offer?

Call me a stalker but I have been noticing that a lot of people's Facebook status' and blog entries have been really sad [I would be lying if I said I wasn't a part of this].

They have consisted of repetitive heartbreak, loneliness, self-doubt, insecurity, etc. The list goes on. It is really putting me in a mood where all I think about is, what do I have to offer?
I ran into a blog that talks about her fight through depression. It is the most inspiring thing I have read in a long time. You all may be thinking I'm nuts calling it inspiring, right? Well it really is. She blogs about her fight through it; good days, bad days, struggles, and success. She doesn't sugar coat anything. She loves herself-- and you can tell.

So back to the question that has been haunting me: what do I have to offer?
I have a lot to offer.

I'm a sister. I am there for them to offer my support and love. No matter the circumstances.

I'm a friend. I am there for all of them. To listen, to cry to, and to laugh to.

I'm an Aunt. I'm going to give my nieces and nephew the unconditional love that every child should receive.

I'm smart [not in a egotistical way]. One day I will earn that degree and help whoever I run into that needs me.

I'm funny. I will make it a goal everyday to make someone laugh. It's a great thing to do.

I'm domestic. I, one day, will make a man very lucky. He'll be proud to call me his wife.

I love love. I will love everyone I run into [sooner or later]. I'm a sucker for it. I love anything that deals with it.

I'm centered around Christ. He's an example. I am here to strive to be like Him.

The list could go on. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I am who I am. If you don't like it... well then, I guess you don't like it. It's not hurting me one bit. However, I do hate when people don't like me. That is a goal I am going to try and succeed in; don't care what others think.

I'm not perfect. No one is.

Just know that, all, you are who you are and no one should ever change that. If anything, someone will bring the best of you out so the world can see.

Thanks for listening to me vent.
