Hey Bettie,
Just trying to catch up and read some posts before I go on my trip.  Wish I could pack you in my suitcase!  I’m really looking forward to it.  I’ve been reading back through some of your posts, being away for a while as you know, and I just want to say, WOW, you really have some great insight going on here.  From when you started, you are really peeling back the onion and getting down to some important things.  Great job!  There are so many things that you are saying that are true, but the ones that stick out to me is that we do deserve good things and we are worth it!  As you know, I’ve been going down that path too, and I am really starting to like me!  No more victim!  I usually try to smile on the outside, but now, I’m starting to smile from the inside.  Very refreshing.  Soooo, the long and short of it is that you seem so, so much better than when you started here and are doing an excellent job.  When people say negative things to me, I trying to take a saying that my sassy middle daughter says, "Hmmmmm, let me see if I care what you think, (pause, pause), NO I DON"T."  If someone says negative things to me, why the heck would I want to have them around.  Ok, family may be different and that’s a whole other issue and may be harder to deal with, but people off the street, whatever!
Hang in there.  You are making excellent progress.  I’ll stay strong on my trip.  I deserve a better life and so do you!You can do anything if you put your mind to it! Have great day! – DD
