March 18, 2014
One year ago from March 16 I lost my best friend. I know I will never be the same person that I was on March 15, 2013 because it was the day before my life was flipped upside down. Although I went through some negative changes - many, many negative changes - I also underwent some positive ones as well. I use to be a very quiet person when it came to confrontation. I used to let people step all over my back and say whatever they wanted without speaking up for myself. I have been threatened, I have been lied to, I have been called many names just as I'm sure everyone else has had this happened to them. But this past year I have learned to not let these things happen to me freely and to speak up for myself when I'm being mistreated.
So my new goal for this year is to no longer let these negative influences control my life. I was very negative but starting today I'm going to be optimistic. Every situation has a positive outcome, some just may take longer to find out the positivity.
