I know now not everyone is going to be as thrilled with you as you are with yourself, but that’s okay “I really like myself. I feel like that is the thing I will focus on. It feels good to be in a good place. My life is still good. I also try to eat healthier. I lost weight on my own. The more I did on my own the more confidence it gave me. I have to say to myself I am a strong person. I may get knocked down but it’s not going to stop me from getting back up. In other words giving up hope is not an option. Enemies try to discourage you but I am so motivated that I won’t go any further. My illness is so hard for me. I try to stay close to family but I am trying to get a preowned car.
