I don't know if this makes any sense but keeping busy makes me not think about picking or anything negative. I am concentrating on school, work, and my kids. I even think about the next meals I am going to cook. I am always ready to send a text to someone to demand my school rights or my daughter's rights in school. I started working out. And yes, I started talking to positive, successful men who are treating me with respect. They are also making time for even if via phone. They are respecting my time to complete my education. I also spoke to both of my parents and decided to let them know how I would be treated if they wanted me to be in their lives. I also let go of those who are negative. I stop emailing them or even thinking about them—what a great weight off my shoulders. The hardest one was telling my daughter I could not babysit as often as she would like to save her money because I needed to work, study, and have my time. If you like my blog, please follow.
