What I Wish I Know Now That I Knew Then

e·piph·a·ny (from the ancient Greek epiphaneia)
1. an experience of sudden and striking realization

I was never one to try and be myself. I thought that wasn't okay, and while going through life, I realized that I will never be happy trying to be someone else. Something inside me switched on like a light bulb; I stopped thinking that I had to do certain things to be desirable. I became me. At my peak, the newborn version of myself realized I will never be anyone's expectations of me. I'm at a point in my life where I don't need to impress anyone anymore. Love is all I can give myself now because of it. Peace starts with you. Once you are at peace with yourself, you can be at peace with everyone else.
