These Things Do Not Define You

These Things Do Not Define You

You Are So Much More Than Any Of These

Your past
Your nickname
Your family
Your job
Your failures
Your pain
Your weight
Your education
Your guilt
Your hairline
Your sleepless nights
Your mistakes
Your insecurity
Your fears
Your sadness

Your doubt
Your debt
Your skills
Your skin
Your addiction
Your untidy home
Your stress
Your shame
Your crime
Your bank balance
The color of your skin
Things can be changed, improved, forgiven, forgotten,  left behind, accepted, made bigger, smaller, stronger, brighter.
People are not their behaviors. Just as we should not judge others we also should not judge ourselves.
