I thank God I had quite a few successes older in my 30s. God has been good to me. I choose to hold on to my faith in hard times. I encourage myself I say “Esha you can do this, Esha you can make it. You can and you will.” The resolve to keep on trying whenever I succeed reinforces my confidence in myself, and my own ability to do things on my own. When I prove others wrong I say you know even despite this difficult mental illness I have battled since I was fourteen years old I choose to see myself as just as good as any other person. God made a way where I saw no way. I praise God for this breakthrough. Often times when I had a bad day I felt like giving up, but God is in this battle with me. I try to take life day by day. I will also continue to practice driving lessons, but I should be getting my probationary license by the end of November at the end of this month. I am happy I won’t need supervision once I pass the road test. I can upgrade to a probationary license at the DMV. For the 21 and over route to driving all you need is three months of supervision. I become eligible on November 28th of this month.
