I used to be a college rep and I would see catchy slogans on swag everywhere when I was working.
One, in particular, caught my eye.
I have spent most of my days basing who I am on what I do and what I accomplish. I was always waiting for something, or someone, to deem me worthy of love and acceptance. But constantly striving for perfection and aiming for a flawless performance takes a toll.
In fact, it's downright exhausting.
Every number felt like a grade of how well I was doing - would it be an A+ or an F? With every blood test and Doctor's visit I was anticipating a "you're not good enough" lecture.
I will not allow diabetes, or what other people think, to define me or confine me.
There is so much more to who I am.
Letting the 'D limit me? That's a #diafail.
(That lecture never came, by the way, my Doctor is phenomenal).
