I Quit – A Poem

I quit.

I quit comparing myself to others

and not seeing how beautiful I am.

I quit listening to the opinions of others

and letting them change me.

I quit listening to the internal critic

every time I look into the mirror.

I quit being jealous of other peoples success

and letting it overshadow what I’ve already accomplished.

I quit being too hard on myself

and holding myself to a standard that I will never reach.

I quit looking for validation from other people

and instead I will validate myself.

I quit listening to the people who say I can’t

and will listen to the people who know that I can.

I quit holding myself back because others tell me to

I choose to shine as bright as the stars.
