Let stigma go

He said: Isn’t she the one with the mental issues?..

He didn’t say, isn’t she the classical pianist?..
He didn’t say, isn’t she the one who loves Arabian horses?..
He didn’t say, isn’t she the talented electrical engineer, photographer, author?..

She replied: She is doing really well now.. She has a good heart and is a good soul..

I say.. Let stigma go..

A long road home

I never wanted to be sick nor advocate for those who are. I just wanted to be normal. I wanted to be in the in crowd not ostracized for being the odd duck. As the road unfolded before me more and more I accepted my path and its pebbles rather than fighting against it tooth and nail.

I began to realize there are more like me than not and many are afraid to reveal themselves. Gaining courage and confidence to use my words and voice and risking everything has been a long road home but well worth the trip.

Of all the vocations I've tried, being true to myself has never failed me.
