    I hope that you are, I know I am.

    It wasn't easy but you have to decide if you're going to die or fight. I hope you fight because there is so much power to validating and approving of yourself vs hoping that someone else will. Do the things you love and love doing them again, pray, laugh, yes I said laugh...

    It's Just Easier

    I Am.

    I am brokenhearted. I am smiling most of the time. When I don't smile, when I show people my sad soul, I frighten them away. That's just the way it is for me. I'm sure there's more people like that in this world. I'm just wondering how many.
