But today

Today I’m going to be proud of myself

Not for being an excellent sheep but for being an imperfect teen who gets up every morning and tries her best

For letting this fucked up world turn her into a beautiful woman

For letting Jesus suck her in

For being kind and patient and accepting.

Take that, beauty standards, comparative thoughts, and tinges of jealousy

Take that, demons
