    I Believe In the Power of Positive Thinking

    I actually used to be a really negative person, plagued by depressing thoughts. I've had to retrain myself to be a more positive person. It isn't always easy, and I haven't completely perfected the art of being positive, but what progress I have made, I have definitely felt a...

    A Necessity

    I have been on the other end ... negative. It can be a real downer and did lead to depression and thoughts of suicide because of my being transgender/transexual. I am past that now and I am glad. I am positive all the time and look to the future.

    I feel that life can be transformed
