Once more this quote is one I found when I was battling my depression.

I have always put the happiness of others first. I believe it was because I never felt that I really was suppose to be happy. A lot of different things that had happened and a really bad tape that played over and over and over again in my head.

Now though, I know that I have every right to be happy. To enjoy the things that I love to do. I will no longer bow down to what others think I need to do to make sure that they are happy. That is not how it works in my world any more.

Each day I make a choice to be happy. To do what I love to do. Write. Be with my friends. Hang out with T and laugh. There is a lot of laughter in my life and no misery.

We all have a right to being happy in our lives.

Again this quote was one that I found while I was fighting my depression.

For so long I always believed that my worth was tied into how well I did my job, how good of a friend I was or how well I solved everyone else’s problems.

In doing so I lost sight of myself. The joyful me. The playful me. The writer me.

With each step forward I leave behind the need to prove myself to anyone but me. I am good enough. When I look in the mirror, I am pleased with who I see looking back at me.
