This Is Who I Am And Who I’m Not

I will not let my depression destroy me
I will not put myself down
I will not conform to society’s standards and expectations
I will not mask for fake love
I will not be ashamed of my life so far
I will not blame myself for my life so far
I will not seek approval from my peers only without approving of myself
I will not feel guilty for asking for help
I will not feel guilty for needing a break
I will not view everyone as the same
I will not compare myself to others
I will not try to be exactly like others
I will not push myself too hard
I will not set expectations for myself. I will set goals
I will not force myself to enjoy something just because everyone else enjoys it.
I will not view only the negative things around me
I will not let hate consume me
I will not change my beliefs
I will not try to act “normal”
I will not be a doormat
I will not be a people pleaser
I will not judge others
I will not make fun of others
I will not make assumptions about people I barely know
I will not follow trends
I will not be afraid to say no
I will not be afraid to reach out
I will not be afraid to take risks
I will not be afraid to progress as a person
I will not support a sociopath president
I will not support hatred
I will not support traitors
I will not support murder for profit
I will not support corruption
I will not support racism
I will not support sexism
I will not support 45

I am Samuel Dailey
I am a Mental Health Advocate
I am Actually Autistic and proud
I am 30 and still live with my parents
I have bipolar and PTSD from my school days
I take medication
I have had a lot of jobs that ended up short term due to my learning disability and mental illnesses
I have lost a lot of friends and a relationship over the years, many of which I was better off without
I have spent years trying to please others and not myself
I have spent years with low self esteem
I have been made to think and believe for years I am a bad person and a dangerous person with zero empathy who has several harmless things about me that I must change to fit in

I love myself
I am enough
I matter
I am a good person
I see good in many people
I have come a long way to realize this

And it’s never impossible for people to do the same for themselves
