I am so much better now.

  • <b> </b> Today, August 31, 2014 marks 1 year since I left behind Southern California and a miserable life. Having left that life behind, I am no longer afraid to go home after work. I no longer have to brace myself for an evening of anger and harsh words.Coming home was the best decision I had ever made.<p><b></b> I am very thankful for my friends and family, and how they welcomed me back with open arms. They made the transition feel much less painful. I love you all, and thank you so much.<p><b></b> I feel I have grown a lot in the past year. I feel better than I have in a long time.<p><b></b> After years of being mentally beaten down, losing who I was, and living like a hermit, I have found some self esteem and confidence again. I am ready for the new adventures a happier life is going to bring me.<p><b></b> I know now, I belong here.<p><b></b> Thank you Eric, Nick, Zephy, Matt, Jb, Michael, Mom (Deb), Felicia, Jaye, Crystal, for loving me and accepting me. I love you guys!<p><b></b> Now, cue the tears, but they are happy ones.<p>
