I’m built on the wreckage of the lowered expectations that were enveloped in the guise of microaggressions, slights and unadulterated dismissal. Admittedly it left my ego impacted and pock marked not unlike the Earth’s moon.
I treasure those who have maligned and ostracized me on this journey; this ongoing lesson that is my life, because it has been their actions that have provided me with the wherewithal to continue on.
Enemies, nemeses and enemies masquerading as friends… I thank you.
You have been more instrumental than friends and family. In retrospect you served as my cheerleading section when I needed it the most.
I tip my hat in appreciation to you rather than extending my middle finger.
