I Am Who I Am

I am Sam. I am a red headed, pale, freckled, blue eyed Irish American/Norwegian American woman. I am one of the nicest people you'll ever meet but if you cross me I can be a complete bitch. I am close with my family both blood and otherwise. I am the person that if you gain my trust I will go to bat for you as many times as you need it. I am the person that if you break my trust then you are black listed in my book.

I am a geek who also enjoys sports. I am a Penn Stater through and through and nothing anyone can say can deter me from that. I am also a Maryland Terrapin since that is where I attend Grad School. I am a techy who has an undergrad degree in Anthropology. I am a technical writer, novelist, short story writer and nonfiction writer.

I am a person who falls in love with the person not their gender, sex or ethnicity. I am in love with the best guy in the world. I am the luckiest girl in the world to have a guy who treats me with the respect that I deserve. I am fortunate to be financially stable and almost loan free. I am lucky to have an amazing support system of friends and family who would do anything for me.

I used to have horrible crippling anxiety. I used to hate the way I looked. I used to let people walk all over me. I used to date a guy that cheated on me and then remained friends with him. I used to have friends that were never really my friends. I used to care a lot about what people thought of me and thus tried to please everyone. I used to think that I would be alone for the rest of my life.

I am a strong, independent woman who can take care of herself but also knows when to let other people take care of her. I am the person who when given a task will work their ass of to accomplish it. I am the happiest I've been in years.

I am Sam. I am who I am.

There is nothing more amazing than loving what's under your skin and the skin itself, too. And the people who are close to that skin. I'm very happy that you love you, for I adore my witchy self and I understand what loving oneself means.

Hug yourself and cackle a little!

This is the first post by you that I've read, and I already love you! What's even better is that you love yourself. Not many people allow themselves that luxury. I too was locked in a cocoon of crippling self-doubt and fear of the world & people, but have emerged as a newly-confident Human Being thoroughly in love with myself too. Witchy Hugs and Bright Blessings!
