No one can pull you down if you raise AWARENESS to your own inner strength and beauty.

We are all responsible for our own emotions and we are all resposible for our own self image. If we give that responsibility to someone else we will always be disappointed. IMHO

I remember telling my WH just days after Dday:

"You do not define me. Your shitty actions do not define me"

These were not just words I spoke, I honestly believe what I said.

I am not sure where I found this but I can relate to it...

Who are you to tell me that I'm less than I should be? Who are you to say that I need to look a certain way?
Who are you to judge me for who I am now and how I used to be?
I got 4 words for you
I am who I am and I'm keeping it that way
Tall, short, whateva that's how I'll stay
I won't change for you or anyone else
See, no one defines me, Only myself
God put me here for a reason
He didn't put me here to compete with that girl
Or impress that boy
He put me here to do what's right
And that's what I do
I suite myself, I don't suite you
If you wanna define me go right ahead
Look me up in that dictionary you'll see it says
Beautiful, smart, the light of the world
Cause you see...
" I AM A ME" " I AM IT "
I am everything I could ever be
OH and one more thing ...

in R 4 years and it's working but he is putting 200% into it (as he should) to make it right again.

The truth hurts, but I have never seen it cause the pain that lies do.
