My name is Kiara. I was named after an old record that I found in my parent’s basement. They really liked the musical group that performed the record, and they thought it was really pretty. I, too, think it’s really pretty.
I see your smile and your face full of contentment. So many things are being thrown at you at all angles. No matter how hard it is, you must "be strong, be brave, walk away, not cry, care less, etc." Simply saying, you are told not to show you are human. I know you are tired. I can feel your heart ache sometimes because you feel nobody is there for you.
During 2017, I did a lot of reflecting on how I got to where I am now. I grew up thinking that there is only one way to be “happy and successful”: be a good person, and good things will happen to you. Seems simple enough, right?
