As a woman self love gave me my life back.

I once had a conversation with my psychiatrist and luckily she asked me if I wanted to stop smoking. This was more than five almost six years ago. It will be six years ago this July. I am looking forward to summertime. I am true to me. I know sometimes not everyone is going to like me. It was my experience to have opportunities available to me in what I studied in college English and Creative Writing. All I need is to be able to pass Core. I know God is right here with me. I miss my biological father, I feared losing my mother since I was a child. I need to focus on the present because I want to also be there for my mom. She is such a good natured wonderful person and she is the only person I experience unconditional love with. I am so self centered but even I know that it’s not all about me. Maybe I can help my mom and family more and just be safe. Once a man in a Nazi uniform was walking by when I was driving in the car with my mom driving. I know I am not going to let anyone stress me out but it is not easy in the Trump-era. I also realize I’m not the only one who struggles with mental illness. It is so different than I thought it would be and I had a supportive mom and also stepfather.
