How I found myself

Dedication: I dedicate this story to the one and only Jesus Christ, my savior.

Hi, I’m a teenage girl who hadn’t found herself until this whole coronavirus happened. When a song starts playing, I can’t stop myself. I just start singing, and I don’t even know if I’m good at it. I saw a zodiac post that said that an Aquarius should sing more, and honestly, that has kind of changed my life. I feel more confident. And when I don’t feel good, I turn on my playlist and sing until I get all the pain out. One day at school, I was having a bad day, so I left lunch a few minutes to brush my teeth. I ended up singing at the top of my lungs, and a teacher walked by the bathroom during my “performance”. I should have been embarrassed, but I felt good. I think anyone out there should give music a chance. I found myself, and I’m so glad I found this strong, confident, happy girl that has been hiding inside of me. I brought out the good in myself, and all I had to do was rely on myself. I found that you have to (in a way) be alone. You have to think there’s no one but yourself, and that you can do this. You’ll learn that you are stronger than you seem, and you can do anything. Music is the key to finding yourself, and I promise it feels good. I love you, and although you are a stranger reading this, it’s true. I believe you can love anyone, even if they did terrible things. Everyone deserves to be loved, and whatever religion you are practicing, God believes in you and only wants the best for you. I love you, stranger. You just have to believe it.

I believe in God. Heaven. Happiness. Most people don't believe me, but God is the one reason I get out of bed in the morning. And although it might not cross my mind at the time, I love him. He is my savior, and I don't plan on wasting my time on this earth. I want to help people, and yes, it's hard to do through a screen, I'm trying. I love you, stranger.
