I feel like I finally developed autonomy. I like it.

One thing about me is I like to be able to just do what I enjoy and not have someone tell me what to do or how I should be. I was always kind of the girl that was bullied in school until recently I just felt like I could let go of the anger and kind of say “I’m not going to worry about the past and if I had past failures or hurts I am doing better. I am a work in progress and I can heal my life.” I really enjoy my job working as a Mentor and I’m going to a day program in Trenton called Oaks Integrated Care. I like it there so far. My first day was Monday. I feel like I need to assert myself more but I found my voice writing in a memoir writing class. I can see myself working on my issues at the program. Life is not easy but it’s not too hard either. I sincerely believe God doesn’t put more on me that I can bare. I believe in God. I’ve made it through some difficult times in my life. I lost loved ones. I don’t have that many supportive people I feel like I can trust.
