I was a shy quiet child who didn’t have a lot of friends.

I was a bullied little girl but I remember feeling really happy when I was skipped in 3rd grade. I was skipped twice. I was a well-behaved child too. I was a gifted child. I forgive all of the kids that didn’t like me. As an adult, I’m not popular but people do like me and I feel comfortable being me. I started feeling comfortable being me in my own skin at like age 31 and the feeling is getting better. I’ll be 38 next January. I’m looking forward to my birthday early next year. I want my life. I want to live a long prosperous well-lived life.
