Candy Reader Poetry: I Used to Be That Girl

I used to be the girl who thought the pain would never end.

I used to be the girl who doubted herself and her abilities
I used to be the girl who cared so much about other people's opinions of her
I used to be the girl who spoke rarely in class because she was afraid everyone would laugh at her

I used to be the girl who said yes to everything because she wanted everyone to like her

I used to be the girl who would put on a fake smile and pretend everything was fine when it wasn't
I used to be the girl who barged into other people's conversations to feel like she actually belonged to a group
I used to be the girl who cried herself to sleep every night
I used to be the girl who lived her life in a cycle
I used to be the girl who thought the pain would never end

I used to be that girl

Now, I am the girl who knows and loves who she is
Now, I am the girl who only cares about what herself, her friends, her family, and God
Now, I am the girl who can speak her mind and stand up for herself

Now, I am the girl who can say no to people and can accept that not everybody will like her
Now, I am the girl who can openly express her feelings and deal with her problems
Now, I am the girl who ignores the thought of being left out and has fun on her own anyway

Now, I am the girl who reminds herself of all the good things in her life before she goes to bed

Now, I am the girl who strives to live life to the fullest
Now, I am the girl who realizes that pain ends when she chooses to be happy

I am that girl

I am this girl 

I am the girl who will grow for herself and for the people that matter to her
I am the girl who will let go of all her insecurities
I am the girl who will build confidence in herself
I am the girl who will fight for herself
I am the girl who will stay true to herself
I am the girl who will embrace independence

I am the girl who will appreciate everything she has in her life
I am the girl who will set goals and challenge herself to achieve them all
I am the girl who will never give up

I will be that girl
