Growing up, I was considered a ‘tomboy’ because I was good at sports, a lot of the times even better than the boys. In those days, it wasn’t cool and people tried to change you if you didn’t ‘fit the norm’.
I am here to tell you that I am still good at sports and I didn’t let anyone talk me out of it, although they tried but their reasons never made sense to me.
Everyone needs to be who they are and be what they feel. Who can say they know how you feel. Are they walking in your shoes?
It is up to you to stay strong, let go of the things that don’t ring true to you and be the person you were meant to be.
