“I learned to not let others control me and I now don’t need to make everyone else happy to have good healthy relationships. It is a lot easier just to be me and not try and please everyone else – because it doesn’t work. I have also learned to hold myself to a high standard as well as others. I used to be so afraid of what everyone else would say or think about me; but now I have earned respect and have created strong honest relationships. Integrity is important – trust me it is so much easier to jut tell the truth. Having integrity takes you so far – it has helped me not only not build trust with others, but also with myself. I am so much happier with the girl I am. By working on becoming me, I have started on a journey of self-love; one what is to be continued, and one that makes me truly happier than anything else.”
