Ah...yes. I have an unavoidable person like that in my life and I can't tell you how IMPORTANT it is to let the snickers and belittling words go and focus entirely on your goal(s). :) It is easy when you realize that it is totally the thing to do and you are worth it!!!!!!!!!!!!
The trip to rediscovering myself has been a challenge. I'm far from perfect but I can definitely say I'm no where near where I was. Its taking time. I have slipped and used but in the process it reminds me time again. I deserve better. And someone out there is counting on me. Never give up people! It's a struggle you'll be thankful for one day.
