But i found this, the other day, and i read it several times, and thought, yes, this is where i am in my life, I am me, I like who i have become, and what i am.
A lifetime of bullying, putting down at every opportunity, feeling worthless and useless, i have reached that point where I know family love me for who i am, partner knows me warts and all, and still thinks im wonderful and wouldnt want me any other way, Its taken a long time to get here, No thanks to the one person who should have taught me different but im here, and you know what,
Its a wonderful feeling
See, there is always a light at the end of any tunnel, sometimes though, the tunnel has bends in it, and blocks out the light for a while, but its still always there

“There comes a time when you have to stand up and shout:
This is me damn it! I look the way I look, think the way I think, feel the way I feel, love the way I love! I am a whole complex package. Take me... or leave me. Accept me - or walk away! Do not try to make me feel like less of a person, just because I don't fit your idea of who I should be and don't try to change me to fit your mold. If I need to change, I alone will make that decision.
When you are strong enough to love yourself 100%, good and bad - you will be amazed at the opportunities that life presents you.”
