I have always thought that if I didn’t think about it, it would go away. It only goes away for a little while until something happens that reminds you of that trauma or that day that you tried to forget. I’m no longer going to do that, it does nothing but hold me back as well as it would anyone else. In the past couple of weeks a lot has happened and most with my illness would probably have not made it through and knowing that it has shown me that I can make it through anything with the mind set of wanting to. I know I am strong just like a lot of you out there are and if you just believed in yourself, just a little bit you will see how far you can go. Don’t ever doubt yourself or let anyone make you feel like you can’t do the things you want to do because you can do anything you put your mind to. For a long time I believed that I couldn’t do a lot of thing’s and I’m doing more now then I have in a long time. I’m proud of myself and that is a better feeling then having someone tell me they are proud of me because I can now smile at the world knowing I’m doing what someone said I would never be able to do. So I leave you with this, stand tall with your head high and tell yourself that you can and will do whatever it is you want to do because you can if you put your mind, heart, and soul into it.
