I think it's because I'm finally comfortable with myself. I'm not defensive about my height or my weight, my taste in music or anything else that people try to shame others about. I'm done imagining what could have been and instead have been focusing on living in the present. Things are how they are, and one can either fight things or accept them and move on. I'm done trying to fight battles I cannot win-- instead I'm going to make the best of my situation. And my situation right now is really quite simple, and quite good. I don't have a reason to create problems or make myself unhappy for no reason.
It's nice to write a post basically saying that all is well in my world, at least for now. I know that moments like this are fleeting unless you fight to keep them, and I think I'm ready to fight for happiness.
