Sometimes I feel like hiding forever.

I messed up again causing anger, disappointment and probably even hate amongst my family.

Money is the root of all evil and definitely my downfall.

I have to do better for my brother, mother and myself. We can't keep living in fear, heartache and only seem to struggle!

It's time for me to woman up and set my life down a healthy and happy path instead of spiralling downhill and just experiencing setbacks.

I should be in a progressive position at my age, 27! Instead I've just been a disappointment to others and myself. However I feel it is not too late and I can turn my life around.

I imagine myself accomplishing great things but in reality I don't push myself to be great, always settling for second best, not comfortable in my own skin, always worried about what others think or what they are doing and most importantly not acknowledging and owning my own mistakes. This has been the underlying root which has led to my ongoing self indulgences.

Today, those feelings are uninvited and no longer exist, I must strive for the best I can be, have a healthy body and mind set…...I must care about myself….I must love myself…..I must change for the Better!
