This Will Only Make You Stronger.

AS I read stories of people that are putting themselves out there I admire their courage and there strength.
I am always left wondering if things in peoples lives define who they are or what they can achieve in there life.

As for me I am a child of a acholic parent who by her sickness died from a overdose. I am was also a child that was pretty much thrown away because of a new marriage and their new children. I am not resentful now but I think certain things might have lead me to a failed marriage and to stay because I would not want my children to have to live in a broken family.

Through all my turmoil I had discover what I could do on my own merit. I put myself through school, I had owned a successful business, I have sons that treat me like I am there favorite person in the world.

I write this for anyone out there that thinks life has beat them down, everytime I thought this, I would pick myself up and tell myself things will get better, you can make them better.

Yes moving on is key. Dwelling only makes you more sad. My therapist suggested when I do wallow in bad thoughts, I should try tell myself that this thinking is unproductive - it only makes you go deeper and deeper into a state what I call "SAD". Do something else - think of something else. It is gradually working for me.
