Usually the things life throws at you discourage you and worry you.

The opposite is happening to me. The more I try the more I see that I am intelligent even if I need things explained to me like my assignments for college. I want to become an educator. I am a Mentor and I love my job. I never thought I would relax into myself after I think of the childhood I had, the difficult adolescence I had and even my 20s full of fear, paranoia, anxiety, and doubt. I did become myself though. I remember that everyday now! I want my life. I want to live.
