I have been married for almost 23 years. I have 3 children, and 1.5 grandchildren. Just to put this out there, this is making me anxious because I feel like I should include more about myself. I am a very private person and do not like to share with others. However, I am consciously making a choice to be less anxious and nicer to myself so I can become a healthier person for me and my family.
