I have had many disappointments in my life and I have hosted my share of pity parties. But now I’ve decided that I need to stop playing the victim. If I am not where I want to be in life then I need to figure out a way to get there. If the people that surround me bring me to dark places, then it’s time to weed them out. Life can be a battle, sometimes only within myself, but like most battles, they can be won.
