You Are Amazing As You Are- Contest


    Folks may not get you or understand 
    you and that's ok.
    You're learning and growing trying to 
    make sense of the world.

    I get it, you don't even understand why
    you do things you do.
    But don't let negative people mold you
    into their perceptions of you.

    You may be young and still finding your way, 
    but don't let anyone tell you something’s
    wrong with you.

    Your quirks and flaws are a part of you, 
    no one is perfect, not even your haters.
    Be your own cheerleader and tell yourself
    positive affirmations when you are feeling 

    There's going to be a select few in your
    corner that will have your back no matter
    what. Who are they? You might ask?
    They are non judgemental folks that 
    accept you for being your unique self.
    They will not try to conform you into 
    what they want you to be.

    Finally walk with your head up high and
    don't be too hard on yourself when you 
    make mistakes because mistakes and 
    failures are opportunities to grow.

This is excellent advice and you wrote it very well, Alexis. I should have asked you the title of your poem from the very beginning!!

Well Lexi what can I say, something's fishy here, I know I definitely left a comment. Anyway, this is very good advice especially for a teen these days so many have little self esteem. Very good!

That’s such good advice Alexis which should be out there and seen by anyone who’s lacking in self esteem. Wish I’d had this advice when I was a young girl. Best wishes... Belle
