I am striving to be a strong and independent woman. A woman who is filled with strength and pride to be able to succeed in anything she hopes to achieve. I will suceed in my pledge quarter. I will succeed in my classes. I will succeed in reading all the materials given to me by my professors and successfully understand everything. I will pass my exams and I will make it. I will do all of this with my head held high and make my family proud. I will not disappoint my parents. I will fight hard to make it in this new university, this new setting, and this new life.
I will make so many sisters and love and care for each of them as if they were my own blood. I will always smile and never show my weaknesses to anyone. I will remain strong to the best of my ability. I do not need a man by my side to make my dreams come true. Why would you need a man, when you can just love yourself and make your own self happy? Life isn’t made to be dominated by another person or have your smiles be tarnished by another person. If I do find a man in this university (man not boy by the way), then our relationship must be a partnership. I will not settle for anything less than that. If he tries to dominate me, then I will be out the next day. I will not stick around and willingly let myself be oppressed. I have had enough of that kind of lifestyle to last me.
An advice for my future self, if someone is disappointing you, and upsetting you. Or if they just decide to not want to be your friend. Then forget about them. Move on to the next friend. There are so many people in this new university, therefore, there are bound to be people who would be your friend and relate well with you. You don’t have to try so hard. You just have to believe in yourself and trust yourself.
Love yourself. Trust yourself. Believe in yourself.
Don’t ever give up on your dreams.
