Now that I am in a good place in my life I don’t judge myself for giving myself retail therapy or saying “I’m just as good as anyone else.”

I know God understands that this world we live in is chaotic. I feel blessed to be able to at least enjoy the life I have. I want to live and not die. I want to be able to write for children and teenagers. I worked as a mentor and I really enjoyed the work. I am going back to school and hope to pass the praxis core reading exam on the second try. I know I can do it this time. I am also doing adult coloring which I find therapeutic. God is the center of my life. I know I can trust God. You can’t always trust people. Some people betray you. I at least try to establish trust with family and friends. I am a good person.
