Yes, I thank my Mom (may she rest in peace) for my common sense, ambition, survival skills and compassion. When I mess up, I blame myself.
Myself only, until just recently. My wonderful friends here on EP for helping me accept who I really am, now
Just Me, Myself and I
I was molested as a child, and it made me afraid of people. So I found my passion in life early on, and have been self-employed since I was 17. <br />
So, thanks for taking away the distraction of relationships!
Sorry to darken the mood but I got attacked (hate the R word) 6 years ago. Moved towns as couldn't face bumping into him and since then my life has just got better and better. Great job, own house, fun hobbies, good friends- I guess thank you attacker I wouldn't be here otherwise :s
Mostly myself.... I'll give my Mama a little credit too.
No. My life is the way it is because of a variety of factors, many of which are my own response to what others did, but not ALL of what others do can be completely negated by one's reaction.
Henry David Thoreau. I wish I could thank him.
Everyone I have ever met has had an effect on who I am today :)
