I am Who I am, Thanks to You

Who are you thankful for this Thanksgiving? I know that you have many people in your life that make you better. Do not ever take them for granted. Make sure that you let them know that you are thankful for their presence in your life. When you take the time to put good people in your life, you will see life differently. You believe that you can make a difference. You also believe that they can make an impact too. You are an everyday world changer. Start today!

1. People who highlight my flaws.
I hate these people at first. Perhaps they’re too honest by nature or their honesty sprang from a hurt I caused. My flaws differ. They might reside in my character, personality, speech, actions, or behaviors. Facing them is like rubbing salt into the wound. I might disagree, rage, and become angry at the person who shows us the true colors. It might take many months (sometimes years) to take into account what has been said to us. Eventually, when the ego no longer runs the show, I accept the criticism and work on fixing the flaws.

2. People who highlight my beauty.
Meeting these people feels like meeting an angel—often I refuse to believe they’re real. Because it’s hard to be objective when it comes to myself. It’s hard to see something beautiful in myself. Then, I meet people who give me a new perspective, who inspect each and every magnificent trait in us that I had never seen before. People who highlight my beauty boosts my self-confidence and strengthen my self-love. Just like I can embrace my faults and work on them, I can finally see the good and embrace it.

3. People who show me my path.
I reckon this is the most powerful and important encounter I can ever have. I am destined to walk on a certain path and most of the time, this path is revealed only through others. The experience that inspires this may be good or it may be bad. I may even lose the person who shows me the path. The consequences may not be in my favor, but the results can be astonishing. In my case, a toxic relationship I was in 3 years ago opened the door to where I am today. Despite the fractured parts of the relationship, I am forever thankful to this person for inspiring me to find my way.

4. People who help me understand love.
Love is a baffling subject.  I come up with thousands of conclusions until one person comes along and washes away all the raised question marks. There are different kinds of love, however, there is only that feels right. I may get t learn the true meaning of love through a lover or through a friend. Thanks to them, I will approach and practice love differently. They might stay in our lives or leave. Either way, every person I choose to love after that will benefit from the experience of what that one person taught us.

5. People who break me. 
These people will break, damage, send me to hell and back. They will make me cry, angry and sad. They will open every wound within me, and make some fresh ones as well. Meeting these people feels like payback for past karmic behaviors. Although I end up broken and shattered, I grow into strong, decisive individuals. The people who break us are the very ones who make us grow. Thanks to them we hit rock bottom and at the same time reach our highest level.

6. People who read me
I just want to say thank you, whomever you are. Whether you found this through searching online, social media or because someone told you about it, thank you for visiting! If you are a silent reader or a commenter or someone who shares this blog elsewhere for others to find, thank you for being here! I hope to create better content to share with you all that helps you on your writing adventures, no matter what they are. I love being able to help people with their writing, blogging and social media struggles.

7. People whom I love

Without support and prayers of my mom, I would not be able to accomplish much in life. She gives me so much wisdom, love, and encouragement. My mom prays for everything that I do!I would call my mom the rock of our family.  She is the most lively person you will ever meet.  I’ve never met someone who didn’t adore my mom or call her “cute.” My mom is always so ecstatic when I do something great. My younger brother is the funniest person that I know. I am thankful for all the ways that God has opened doors in his life. He has the has the potential to do anything. God has a great plan for his life. I pray for many more years of laughter, conversation, and brotherhood. I have to give a special shout out to my love Mr B. We don’t get to meet often, but we love each other a lot. We truly enjoy spending time together. He is truly my best friend. I am looking forward to many more adventures together with him.

Today, I’m aware of the fact that life is better than I deserve, which is saying something these days. The world is full of pain and suffering, hardship and turmoil, disappointment and regret. So the fact that I can be thankful and mean it is, in its own way, a small miracle. I am thankful to those special people in my life who support me, uplift me, comfort me and bring joy to my soul.
