I gave up on people, I gave up on friendship and I gave up on trying to please others - which only hurt me because that was totally against my nature. I was struggling with my good intentions. I was denying my own nature, trying to be someone I was not, pretending I didn't care... I honestly wished I were born someone else.
But one day, my father said to me, "I would not be here if it were not for your mother." It was a revelation... I was important, even though many people did not think I was.
Everything changed from that day on. I changed the way I saw myself, and so I began to change my world.
If you want to change yours, start with yourself!
