"Hope is like the sun, which, as we journey toward it, casts the shadow of our burden behind us."
"This is not how I planned my life! I didn't think it was going to turn out this way.”
“No matter how hard I try, I continue to do the things I promised myself and others that I would no longer do.”
"I keep telling myself that things will change in my life this time, but I find myself back where I started.”
"People just don't understand me."
"I have no confidence to speak up."
"I feel as though people are constantly judging me."
“Is there any hope…can I ever change?"
"Will I ever feel better?"
