Some things never change. Over 10 years ago I wrote the poem, Ms. Too damn Aggressive and today this statement still very much so applies. However today I like to call it other names like ambitious, confident and assertive. Those names seem a lot nicer than aggressive. Although depending on the situation I guess sometimes that is the only fitting word to describe my actions.
There are times when being aggressive is the only way you can overcome an obstacle or win a match. When I wrote, The Things Inside Me, the main thing that I wanted people to take from my life and experiences was that I am well-rounded, diverse and relatable. Being aggressive is only one piece of who I am – a dominate piece but nevertheless just one part. At the end of the day there is a time and a place for everything. The key is mastering your emotions and knowing when and where to let each of them show up.
