Some people are born leaders.
Other people are born followers.
Leaders can be followers,
but followers can't be leaders.
I am a leader, hidden deep within the soul of a young woman with introverted characteristics.
For years I thought I was a follower, but then it emerged.
A new feeling, of control and helpfulness.
A feeling of compassion and usefulness.
Being a leader can be scary.
Being a leader can be a great feat.
Being a leader requires enormous amounts of strength and sometimes I just want to quit.
But I can't.
Being a leader is in my bones.
It is in my soul.
It is in the very air I breathe.
And without it, I will have lost a piece of me.
