Just because (macduff's challenge)

Just because i have gained weight
does not mean i have no self esteem.
Just because i am heavier does
not mean i eat a lot of food
or that i do not work out.
Just because I do not work as a
CNA does not mean i don't want to.
Just because i work at at a
furniture consignment shop now
does not mean i do not want
to work in my CNA field.
Just because my knee does not
work all the time does not
mean that i am lazy.
Just because i can not get my
leg to work some days does not
mean i want to be on disability.
Just because i applied for
medicaid does not mean i am
white trash and a slacker.
Just because i go to the Welfare
office does not mean you can
belittle me and make me feel
like white trash.
Just because you look at the
cover you don't know what is
on the inside of anyone.

Hi, adjhe,
Thank you for sharing. Yes, there is inherent worth within every living being and it truly is what is on the inside that defines each of us. It is we who must not give the power to define who we are over to others; but, rather, seek out those who will celebrate who we are and encourage us to bring out the best in ourselves.
We are not alone ,my humble lady ...
