Life is hard. That being said, I know that I am incredibly fortunate. I have a wonderful family, I have friends that I can’t live without, and I’m an educated professional with a good job. Plus, on a more personal note, I’m strong, self-sufficient, confident, not unattractive (on my good days), and generally a good person. When describing myself I usually use self-deprecating language, but if I’m honest, most of the time I think I’m pretty awesome. I’ve worked hard to get where I am today, but that doesn’t mean that I have everything that I want. It’s human nature to want more out of life and I’m no exception to that rule. Luckily my heart is not as fragile as it used to be. I’ve gotten stronger with every distressing situation that I’ve had to live through. I’ve survived hardships that most people don’t even know about, but they’ve made me who I am today. And in spite of all the tears I’ve shed and all of the hurt I’ve endured, I wouldn’t change anything that brought me to this moment in my life. I have a lot to give and I just need to figure out where the journey is going to take me next.
