Sometimes I wish I could be someone else,
someone who is more pretty or more intelligent,
someone who is more extroverted,
someone who has more self-confidence,
someone who is more successful or richer than me,
someone who has an easier past and a brighter future ahead,
someone who can take life and its problems easier,
someone who accepts every problem as it is,

Someone who isn't afraid.

Someone who sees the light in dark days.

Someone who never looses hope.

But in the end, when I look at myself in the mirror,
I understand that I cannot be someone else.

I understand that I am me,
I understand that I have my own strengths,
I force myself to accept what was given to me.
I try to see my own strengths.

But this is hard.

Life is hard.
My life.
My thoughts.
My emotions.

My way of dealing with my problems.

This randomly came into my head while I was in the shower and I felt the very strange urge to write it down. I wrote all of that down in a few seconds. I just wrote down what was coming to my mind...

I've wished before that I was as amazingly talented as you in art. That is something you have, your unique artistic talent, that nobody else will ever be able to imagine. :D

Never wish you were someone else. Everyone has struggles and may not even know it. If you were someone else remember everything that you have accomplished or have may just slip through your fingers like dry, ice cold sand
