Amie, I am glad to have that response to my email, but I want you to know it was a choice. My mom is the most negative and narcissistic person I know. In order to avoid going down that road in my life I made a choice many years ago that wasn't conscious at the time. Since then it's been a choice. Sometimes that ugliness rears it's head but I have to remember what my choices are.
I can't wait to see how your journey goes! I'll be with you every step of the way and if there is anything I can do please let me know! Welcome to SP!
