Matariki! You are a precious soul out there in there in the universe. Please try to accept the gifts people give to you. Practice accepting them. They may come in the form of a smile, a wink, a challenge, a hug, a statement in the form of "You Are AWESOME! I too had problems accepting those accolades in the form of gifts. Life has turned out to be amazing since I consciously chose to accept them. I hope you try it.
Yes. WHAT!? By anyone HERE, or anyone in general?? You are most definitely an asset to our community, and any community, I am sure. Chin up, baby.
I love reading your stuff, your artwork is amazing, and the pictures you post always speak to me. Not to mention that you have been very compassionate to me here when I first started opening up. I appreciate you very much. *hugs*
