I am a person. Not the colour of my skin, the texture of my hair, or the shape of my face, but a person.
I am a child of the universe.
I am an individual. I am unique.
I am more than the sum of my parts or the physical ranking of beauty based on widely held standards.
I am an artist and a lover and a fighter. I am everything I could be and everything I should be.
I am greater than the troubles ahead of me and stronger than the darkness that threatens me.
I come from a family of givers and proudly embrace my heritage of love and openness.
I am at peace with my person and at no one’s mercy for my pleasure.
I am bound only by my expectations and not beholden to live by the rules of anyone else.
I am obligated only to speak my truth and free to raise my voice against manipulation and/or oppression.
I am worthy of love, respect, consideration, and joy.
I am worthy of sharing my thoughts and experiences.
I am worthy of kindness and support.
I am worthy.
