If you're going through life feeling and thinking no one cares or understands you or you're having difficulty forgiving others for all the pain and hurt they've caused you, reading my story will help you see that you're not the only one out there and that if I can be healed and restored then so can you. If you were like me I tried to think ahead and analyze the situation. I was always trying to figure out how someone else thought about me or felt. BIG MISTAKE You can't go through life with this problem. Otherwise, you'll always be trying to live your life for other people instead of yourself. Living saved can be hard for anyone no matter your age or experiences. I had to overcome many things because of choices I made and the way I felt inside of my own thoughts. My mind allowed me to escape many years of my life because reality just seemed too hard to bear. I could control my life from my thoughts but when I wasn't in thought my life controlled me. With everything I experienced in my life I learned a valuable lesson and I'm still learning. This lesson is that you can't blame others for your problems or failures. They may have been involved but you made the choice. I learned that only you can make you happy and that God is the only one you can really trust and rely on. Family and friends will let you down but God will always be there. And even if you feel you deserve something and you pray and never get it, there is always a reason why, always a lesson to learn, and it will only make you stronger.
