I did not get here on my own.
I got here through the help and caring of others.
I got here on the support of amazing family and selfless friends.
I got here through people giving of their time and energy.
I got here on other people’s advice and kind words.
I also got here riding out people’s harsh criticisms and battering remarks.
I got here even after I trusted people who never wanted me to succeed.
I will overcome those who don’t think I deserve to be here.
I am done believing those whom only want to see me fail.
Because of who got me here, I know the difference between those building me up and those knocking me down.
I will respect everyone’s opinions of me but that doesn’t mean I will take their words as gospel.
Because of who got me here, I will help and care for others trying to get to their here.
I will be there with advice and kind words. I will give of my time and energy.
Because if everyone helps everyone else get there, we will reach a world where no one will be lost.
