Am I pretty enough (2-11-19) Amber Johnson I’ve always been told I’m pretty maybe even beautiful Man I wish I saw what they see I see a girl who’s been told by the media and magazines that I’m not enough It’s funny how when we’re little, We had the most confidence What happened to that? I’ll tell you what happened We focused too much of what other people said to us and lost the thought about us being beautiful, and gained the thought of “why don’t I look like her” I look at my self and I say “am I pretty enough” But what I should be saying is “I am pretty enough” One thing we let people take so easily is our confidence That should be one thing they can’t take away So next time you look in the mirror and think “am I pretty enough?” Say “I’m beautiful”
How To Make New Students Feel At Home Here At BLMS (2-11-19) We welcomed a new eighth grader named DeAnthony Logwood here at BLMS. So, I wanted to make sure he was as welcomed as possible and you are probably wondering how. Well, of course, I am here to help. One of the biggest things we can do is make sure to make them feel as comfortable as possible because a new school can be very difficult and scary. I always make sure to ask him about his day, offer to help with homework or his studies, and of course just make him smile. Change isn’t always a bad thing because it can always lead to amazing opportunities and new people. Make sure to always love people no matter what because we never know if that person is facing mountains. Love People, Love Yourself, Make A Difference, And Change The World!
How To Cope With Depression (2-4-19) I know many people who were raised to keep their problems to themselves, put them in a box, and close the lid. To be honest with y’all instead of getting help for my problems, I bottled them up and went on my life. After problems stacked on top of each other, the pain increased, and instead of healing I just became more depressed. I was teased and called a “crybaby” because I was crying out for help. So, I became quiet and never talked once about my problems. Instead of going to a therapist I became my own and every night I swam in my own tears. Every morning after those cry filled nights I woke up with swollen baggy eyes, and that’s when makeup became my best friend. Makeup is something that hides my identity from everyone else. I felt so alone and I was broken. I became the target for every bully because when you’re broken you are also weak. After struggling for so long, one night after sitting there throwing myself a “pity party” I got up and I got a notification from Sprinkle of Jesus. That one message changed my life around. It said “ you deserve freedom from the pain of your past”. If I wanted to feel okay I had to let it out and talk about it. My fear was suffocating others with my problems, but once I let it out, I felt this weight leave my shoulders. There are still terrible days, but my mind was instilled with hope. That hope is the reason I wake up and fight those demons. I made a decision to not let negativity win because yes, those demons are loud, but my voice will always remain louder.
