    I Made The Decision To Change My Life..

    For a long time I let life get the better of me.  I let myself be overwhelmed by all the things that had happened to me, all the things that had gone wrong, all the chances to pull myself out of it that I'd let slip by.. I lived with my best friend for a lot of years...
