    I Am An Adult

    HAVING CHILDREN PUTS MAJOR EMPHASIS ON THAT WORD: ADULT... BEING AN ADULT MEANS 'DOING' WHAT U NEED TO DO, WHAT'S BEST FOR U AND, IN MY CASE, MY FAMILY CAUSE WHAT'S BEST FOR ME IS, ULTIMATELY, BEST FOR THEM. THAT MEANS LETTING GO OF THINGS THAT CAN HARM U MENTALLY, PHYSICALLY...

    Unresolved Anger
