You must be willing to step outside of your comfort zone if you plan on interacting closely with another human being - especially one who deserves your time and energy. I say that NOT to say you should lower your standards, but to say if there is an aspect of the life you want for yourself that doesn't have to be exsctly the way you imagined it, you should compromise. You should recognize what's important and always follow that. Keep your integrity. Follow your gut.

Working a full time job, raising two daughters, attempting to have a social life, trying to make my family proud, and trying to make myself proud are things I do every day. I'm now beginning my journey of giving. This is step one.
