It is so important to be positive, I just told my friend today who is going through a hard time, "you made it through yesterday, you made it through the day before that, the week before that, last year, etc.; you can make it through today and you can make it through tomorrow".
I had a pity party for myself yesterday, it was needed, then I got annoyed w/myself and picked myself back up again. My 26 year old step sister passed away last week and I took a good look and realized how much I really have and how much she will never get to experience and it could all be taken away at any time, life really is so very precious.
You have gone through so much it really amazes me. Take care!!!!
