The way we see ourselves and the way other people see us isn’t the same

I know sometimes even when I say I see sunny or I see the glass as half full being my choice it is never easy. I need to take it day by day and just know that God walks with me and God cares about me. I make all of my own choices. I don’t need to worry. I am the one who chooses what I do. Choices I make are up to me. I feel like even when I say your life is the sum of the choices you make from your 18th birthday that will suffice.
