What doesn't kill us, only makes us stronger.

Sometimes I feel like the strongest person alive.

Remember I emailed you once and told you I felt like we were kindred spirits? Your posts lately only solidifies that for me. I've been dealing with the very same thing lately. Do I please what's within me and do what I want by trying to get published? Or do I please everyone around me and live my life for them? Well, to be honest, I'm selfish. I want to please everyone, including myself. It's not possible. I'm losing friends left and right because I'm tired of pretending, tired of just BEING. I want to feel and LIVE, so therefore, I live for no one but myself, my kids and my husband. Everyone else can take a hike.

It's taken me some 28 years to get here, but I'm in a good place right now. I'm in the place I wish I had been from day one, but now I can only say I've lived and learn. And it didn't kill me, it made me stronger...

honey, you need to live your life for you. not for anyone else on this earth. and when it comes down to it, all that matters is that you are loved by your husband and children. they're the ones you go home to every night.

we can't pick our family. our friends will not always agree with us or like the choices we make or even be our friends forever. be yourself, be kind to others, be honest, and respect yourself.

my dad always told me to keep my chin up and my nose down. good advice, i think. :)

Doesn't sound like friends, if that is how they act. Good riddance and all that.

Yes, I agree.

Hey, guess what? I get you. Both in the book and in your last couple of posts, but you're a clever enough girl to have realized that I probably would.

Love you. Mean it. Call me.

I think you are one awesome woman, mother and wife ever. I love reading your blog, the good and the bad. You really are an inspiration to many!

Hi - I'm a new reader to your blog and I wanted to say how much I've enjoyed reading your posts over the last few days.

I'm off to buy your book! :)

You are the strongest person I know ("I" being bolded and underscored!)
