Gee Kit - How did you know I am west of you???  FUNNY!!  Small world sometimes!  I really can't say that I can think of any positive mark that I have left on people.  I have a lot of friends and people that care about me but I guess maybe it's just part of struggling with depression that doesn't let me see the good I've done for others. I have always had low self esteem - but I am hoping with counseling that will start to turn around and I will see myself in more positive light.

I was brought up the same way Nikki, to treat others as you would like to be treated. I think I have left a positive mark on some people, I hope so. Sometimes when you do somthing nice, it seems like notheing to you, but others really appreciate it and they remember that.

Hugs, Karen,

Kitt, good question.

I know I  have done well by my children and I hope people will always feel that I am a kind and caring person, yes one with a mental disorder, but I do try to help people.
So I would say yes to the question.

I hope I have left a positive mark on people... I can't say whether I've ever done anything truly significant for anyone... but... I try to be an upbeat, cheerful person... and I'm kind to everyone I meet... :)
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

Good Day Family,
It is actually sunny here today. . . Got the back and forth MO weather as usual.
I think I have made a positive impact on many people through my life, and I'm always striving for more, so. . . My beliefs definitely help to keep me in check with this because I was always told by my grandmother the same moral standards that I just read in a few posts :)

     I can't really say that I have left a positive mark on anyone.  I don't know.  I listen to people and offer whatever advice I got so maybe I have.  I sure hope so.

In my past I believe I have made a positive mark on those around me. I seemed to have had a gift of helping people. I would attract many friends and family looking for support and advice. Although through my messier times not so much...Maybe Crazy fun memories! It is sometimes had to remember the positive, supportive strong woman I once was...Thats what I find hard at this point in my life and that is understanding who I am now as to who I was than...The good old question...WHO AM I!

Thankyou for the thread, it took me a long time to post as I didn't have to courage to admit to myself that I could have done good in the past or god forbid the now. Thanyou!   gillx

I know you have made a positive impact here in the family, so know that you have left your mark on the many who will read your posts. They will  see you are brave and willing to work hard to find the person who is just hidden in the anxiety.

Special hugs to you
