    Dwindled

    I have instances where I am proud of myself but over the years those have dwindled. I feel like crying, but I can't even do that.

    This Fits Me

    This fit me - this is exactly how I feel. I am a strong, confident and self-assured woman.  I see what I want, I go for it.  Nothing stands in my way, no challenge is to great. On the other hand - I am a weak child, playing on the safe side of...
