Because my feelings are easily hurt –
I have tried to be honest and kind towards others.
Because I was unsure of my abilities –
I have tried to work hard at whatever was needed.
Because I often felt no one was listening –
I have tried to respect and hear other people’s feelings.
Because I had trouble finding love –
I have tried to give love generously.
Because I often feel like crying –
I have become an expert in making people laugh.
Today, I turned 47. And I am all out of ideas.
