Three weeks ago was the launch of my radio show, Eden's Perspective, and I am prompted to write this because we have talked a lot about loving yourself and being comfortable with the skin that you are in. I have the luxury now of being an 11 year old that is in the 7th grade that is housed inside of a high school. So, I am seeing the teenage perspective at work all day everyday and at times, it is not a pretty place. Kids are brutal, and everyone has something to say about everything that you do everything that you say and quite firankly, they want to criticize everything that you are. I am luck enough to have a great support system around me that makes sure that I feel healthy supported and loved at all time. Everyone is not so fortunate; and to those that aren't I say this...embrace your differences because if you don't hold those differences close to you in a warm embrace,then someone will jump all over them and the next thing you know, you feel bad. I know it may seem hard when your route doesn't appear to be the popular one, but hold on to the fact that you are not compromising who you are. But, if you feel as if you cannot get to that place of safety alone, please seek out someone that you feel can help you, mom, dad, aunt, cousin, neighbor, teacher, someone. Or, reach out to a blog, or online community that understands. But until you do that know that I think you are beautiful!!
Ta Ta for Now!
