I don't know if this will end well, but I do know that I am living a more authentic and brave life now. I see so many beautiful things as I am going through this. It's just beautiful.

My life didn't go as I would have liked it to go, when I went through it, but now I feel it's all ok, the good and the bad have shaped me into who I am now and have led me to this place, which is a good one.

I am not sure that it will end well, but I feel like I am becoming stronger and healthier as I am working through this process. I feel troubled by many things that I have to deal with (or rather, choose to face), but at the same time I feel so grateful and that feeling is only growing.

I keep on going on this path, because I feel like this is right, and I dare to do this, because I know that I have dealt with many things already, and people have had my back.

I don't think that you 'should' feel grateful, I just feel it's a much more helpful and beautiful way to look to your life.

Do you feel gratefulness in your life?
Glad to see you making progress! It’s inspirational and nice to read. If you’re becoming stronger and healthier from it than more power to you. Letting go of the past and “taking time to smell the roses” while admiring the beauty is very healing.

Only, thing I feel differently about is being grateful. I think we should be grateful for anything that enriches our lives. I’m grateful for so many things, I can’t even count. I want to be more mindful of being grateful for the many positives in my life. When I’m feeling sorry for myself, upset, sad, etc. thinking about all the things I’m grateful for really helps me snap out it. There is always someone out there that has things worse which is enough for me to be grateful.

I think, feeling gratefulness is a positive and uplifting feeling. It usually represents a gift, I was given. Whether it be ever so small or large.
