Now that I am older I know I can do things too. I experienced trauma early on in life. I had successes older, but I had a really early onset of mental illness. I pray to God. I believe in God. I feel God’s presence and it makes me thank God for interconnectedness, and the ability to connect with other people. I am trying to be honest with myself too. I know God is the person I’d thank for my successes in my life older. I don’t look at anyone else’s now that I have a little shine of my own.
