I Am Done Apologizing

For years, I felt bad for trying to stand up for myself. For asking questions that I didn't know how to find the answers to. For thinking that I deserved knowledge simply because that was always my goal on this earth. When I was a little girl, I had this vision of myself sitting in … Continue reading I Am Done Apologizing
