January 13th.


Sometimes,
Just sometimes,
When you're not expecting it,
It creeps up and smacks you in the face.
Picks at you bit by bit,
Shedding the confidence and leaving you open,
vulnerable,
Naked.
Ashamed of letting yourself down.
And others,
Those who need you,
Those who believe in you,
But you can believe in you.
Challenge,
Question,
Fight back.
Don't be a victim of yourself,
You're a survivor.

    1. What are you going to change Bonnie? Often all we need to change is our attitude towards it or increase our self-esteem. xx
