I've came across many obstacles and lessons, setbacks and extravagances, love and hate, allies and enemies. I’ve experienced all of the above in many situations in my life. I know that problems
will always arise and opportunities to grow will always come about, and the outcome will depend on how I handle them.

Are you feeling angry with people in your life who have wronged you, frustrated by opportunities you haven’t received. feeling limited from the obstacles that prevent you from changes or discouraged by failures and setbacks.

Are you ashamed of yourself for mistakes you've made , disappointed in yourself for making the “wrong” choices. anxious about everything that isn't working in your life ? well then; YOUR HUMAN! we all can feel these things at times . A hero however isn't controlled or limited by them. 

Ive spent majority of my life dwelling on events from the past that seemed unfair and choices i made that caused me to feel ashamed. 

Ive obsessed about what should have happened , and what shouldn't have happened , what i should have done and what i shouldn't have done and how everything could be better if i can just go back and change it all .

Over the last 15 years of my life i learned how to connect with myself, and i noticed that me and 10billion people have something in common. we allow our feelings and beliefs about the past to limit our effectiveness and happiness in the present. and even though we want to let go , we don't know how to live a life that does not revolve around our former pain. so instead , we keep telling ourselves stories — and in the process , we live the story of now based on the sad one before.

Basically, I am trying to tell you we can change how we interpret yesterday, how we view ourselves in response , and how we live today as a result . Don't allow yourself to feel powerless just because you cant erase your past don't mean you cant create a brighter future . its up to you to make it happen . and i am living proof that its possible.

I've came across many obstacles and lessons, setbacks and extravagances, love and hate, allies and enemies. I’ve experienced all of the above in many situations in my life. I know that problems will always arise and opportunities to grow will always come about, and the outcome will depend on how I handle them. 

I am the greatest person in the world and the luckiest , I made it threw all the hard times, fought long and hard.  looking back today is a good day . But when i was in the middle of it , it wasn't so good. As a young women I am happy with who I am , I am happy from the hand I was dealt because am where I'm suppose to be . about decade ago I wouldn't imagined being able to honestly say this . it would probably of sounded more like a far away dream . i was so use to being wrapped up in guilt , shame and fear , that being content and happy were just words i could not relate to. 

The point I'm trying to make is when a person is raised in a particular way, with a particular belief system “like feeling unwanted or unloved” the residue of those beliefs can be very very hard to remove . it will last until the end of your life it will NEVER go away . you’ll always be reminded, carrying it with you. the struggle with this is , understanding and accepting  the fact that you are worthily of being wanted by decent people , decent men & friends . you need to believe you deserve these things ! Just like me.
