I may not be the best man I can be yet, but I will always strive to become a better man than I was before. Some people look up to me because I appear to be perfect in their eyes, but really I am still being perfected in areas they do not see.
Now that I have several chapters of my life behind me, I have time to reflect on the areas that I have not given much attention to and learn what I must do to make necessary improvements. This is important to me because not only do I need to become a better person, but also a better example to those that look up to me for guidance and support.
Some of you may ask yourself, "why is this young man being so transparent... especially in public?" Well, let me explain.
I have been fearful of sharing the honest truth with people closest to me because of how it may hurt them, so I developed a since of secrecy that has been very challenging to overcome. Then, some years back I discovered that being publicly expressive has helped me become more accountable with my actions, therefore, helping me to make better decisions. So, in due time, I hope to overcome the fears that are still present in my life, while keeping myself honest to the people that follow me.
Although, you may not agree with my method, I ask that you learn to be respectful of it because it helps me get better each and every day.
