I have become so much more comfortable in my own skin.

I feel like I am just as good as anyone else. I have friendships but I don’t really have a lot of friends but I have a few. I have my good days and I have my bad days. I like working with children. I want to become a teacher. With this blog I became an author too. I love to write. I have a memoir book project. I am trying to build my work experience. I had a summer job but my illness is difficult. I find ever since I made peace with my illness I’m less afraid of dying. I was hospitalized too. I feel this pain in my chest. I have said no more to smoking cigarettes and that was over five years ago. I just feel like some people are never going to like me. That has kind of always been my experience but I’m done with trying to be accepted and have kind of moved to a place now that I’m almost forty of letting the offenses go and letting go of the past and trying to live more in the present.
