    They say you must hit rock bottom

    before you can rebuild yourself from the bottom up. I have turned into the kind of person that I hate. This is because of the need for attention from men. From this day foward I will change myself for the better. I am a good person, I have just gone haywire lately.

    that my desire to change is real, you will never really know if someone else has the desire to change unless they prove it to you everyday.
