I'm 37 and I'm finally getting a backbone. I was raised to be polite and think of others first, but it is getting old. People will walk all over you and they have me and I just would retreat and get depressed. But, I am getting stronger. Thank God, and I'm feeling a lot better. I used to be afraid to express an opinion but now I've been out there in the world and I don't think I'm such a bad person. I'll probably get rude replies to this but I don't care. I am an individual and I like myself and I think I have something to contribute to this world no matter what anyone else says. I'll continue to be kind and respectful to others as far as my patience will bear. I'm not out to make life difficult for others. I don't think that is what I am here for. We are here to build up others and encourage them and pray for God's intervention to help those going through difficult times. I may not see it pay off in this life, but the Bible says you reap what you sow. I'm going to take care of myself from now on-- the best that I can, but I am going to continue to love even though it hurts. Some people may take that for a weakness but I think that takes a lot of strength.
