People think that accomplishing something

Is nothing to them

But to me

Accomplishing or achieving something

Means a lot to me

Cuz I was the dumb one

Of all the kids my mom had

But when I accomplish something

I feel proud

    I love hearing stories like this because I can relate in a lot of ways. When I was in grade school, kids would often make fun of me and give me looks when I would get up and leave the room to learn in a smaller class because of my learning disabilities. They would tease me and I hated it. I made it my lifelong goal to prove them wrong and show them that I’m capable of so much more than what they assumed about me.

    The dumb ones always come out the strongest. Others are not as motivated as you. Keep accomplishing your goals as you will see your dream turn into reality.
