Feeling good about myself gave me my life back. As a child, I experienced a lot of bullying. I found my voice as a writer. You have to be able to talk back to people who may always tell you certain things, but you need to know that you are just as good as anyone else. You can’t live your life according to what people think about you or say about you for good or for ill. You should fix yourself up once a month and get your hair shampooed and styled and get a manicure and a pedicure too. It seems like a small thing, but you should reward yourself by taking good care of yourself. You get your one life and that’s it. When I turn forty next January 2021 I want to able to enjoy my birthday with a friend or at least do something good for myself that day. Life is too short not to be able to appreciate and enjoy your life.
