I have made the mistake that many women tend to make, which is giving up my reality for a man’s sake. That right there is a NO, NO. I did all I could to satisfy his soul. I put myself in situations that did not make me feel whole. I sat there and set aside my wants, just to pursue his needs. All that ever did was come in between my purpose and my desires to succeed. Sometimes at night I would always talk to God, asking him to help me find myself of who I had left behind. I would look at him sleep and cry out to the stars, looking and seeking for some type of freedom away from him and the abuse that had consumed my spirit. Then one night I looked in the mirror, realizing that I deserved better and that I had to make it as a singer. It was at that point that I wiped away my tears from my crying heart. Instead of giving up, I gave my life a new start. I learned to honor my needs by respecting my own space, mind and spirit. I never gave up who I was for anyone. In closing, “sometimes in the midst of all confusion, you have to learn to peek at your own beauty and look beyond who you are to see who you are becoming.”
