Discovering my self worth.
I grew up like a lot of gay or fat kids and never knew my value. All I knew was that it was less than everyone around me. At least that's what I was taught. It took me a whole lot of years before I realized that wasn't true. One of the nice things about getting older is that you discover who you are. Who you really are. Because I've discovered that I'm worth a lot more than some others might judge, it's important that I always remember to value myself and not be dragged down by others. Recently my job was targeted as one some felt necessary to do a market value analysis on. I had to remind them the analysis was on the job, not me. They'd never really be able to afford me at my true value. That might sound arrogant, but for me, it's tremendous progress.
