I found myself recently single and somehow was left with an overall feeling of gratitude. While we may not have made a good couple for a handful of reasons, I learned to stop judging myself, others and life for what it isn't. Rather, I have learned to appreciate myself, others and life for what it is. I also learned that the best way to feel better about yourself is to help others. While it has been difficult for me to fully love and accept myself, it just might have saved my life. I'm going to do my best to pass these tools on to any troubled folks that I cross paths with in life.
