She walked through the park with great confidence. She was feeling a bit off with all the pollen in the air. Yet, she had a bounce to her step. The flowers all around her were bright and pretty. But, that was not why she had a bounce.
She had just received a grand number of accolades. Exuberance had been in the air. It was as if she was she was Sally Field at the Oscars. She had wanted to say “you like me, you really like me”. Well, facetiously so.
See, she didn’t care. She didn’t need to be liked by them to feel confident in herself. That came from knowing her self worth. That was her lifelong gift to herself. They claimed to like her. But she doubted it. And, she was ok. The flowers sure were pretty.
