"Tenacity is the quality displayed by someone who just won't quit -- who keeps trying until they reach their goal. Anything really worth doing takes persistence, perseverance, and stubborn determination! I AM a Tenacious Jungle Tiger and these are my survival skills!!"
Sometimes our children can be so hurtful, but I don't think they mean to be. You have already accomplished some big challenges! You got this! You can do this! For you. She'll get on board once she see's that you don't need her to cheer you on! Then her cheers will be a bonus!
Taking it one step at a time...
I just came back to SP this month. I have been out of the loop for a while but I am determined and have made up my mind. I am going to push through it. Yesterday I tried to get my daughter to exercise with me. Instead she watched me and then fell asleep.
I reminded her that she said she would support me. She said that I always give up too easy and she would help me once I lost 10 lbs. I felt like . No matter what I am not going to give up. If I can beat the use of drugs for 10 years and cigarettes for 9 years, surely I can overcome this too.
Accept life completely on life's terms.
Nothing happens in God's world by mistake.
I need to concentrate not so much on what needs to be changed in the world as on what needs to be changed in me and my attitudes.
