I thank God I am more myself than I have ever been.

I had some difficult circumstances in my life that’s for sure but I don’t think it gives me a pass. Life can be tough but thank God my life got better. I have been so fortunate to have found NAMI in my mid-late 20s. I have formed some friendships over the years that I really like. I know God is with me all the time. I had an experience back in 2011 or 2012 where I had a supernatural peace wash over me bringing healing to my soul. I got teased a lot as a kid because I was dark. I know sometimes people feel sorry for me but I don’t need anyone else’s pity. I am an intelligent person. I’m also a competent person. My life was given to me to enjoy as a gift from God. I want to be able to just live my life while I still have my life. No one is promised tomorrow. I feel like people have opinions of me but that’s okay. I’ll be forty years old next year. I am going to be good to myself and not let anybody’s drama bother me. Life is too short.
