I have been more myself.

Even though I struggle with my mental illness the illness doesn’t have me anymore. I have good and bad days but I cling to my faith in God. I know even if I were to have setbacks and difficult experiences because of the peace I have on the inside I can be still and know that God is in this battle with me. I am not alone. Many times I felt alone but I am sure I am not alone. I have WordPress to thank for helping me to create my blog. I am so comfortable in my skin as a forty-year-old woman that I can tell that I have come a long way. There has been a lot of personal growth on my part. I don’t blame anyone for my misfortunes. I know God healed me. I made a few new friends and I let go of any animosity toward anyone else.
