Another One - Success Today

Hi guys and gals,
Feeling a lot better since this morning and am starting it feels to make some headway in my doing of things. Managed to say NO for a change. Let me explain. I have "friends" who are always coming back into my life, but only when they need something, they always use me and have stolen from me before. I have helped them numerous times. Last night I got a call, they are having problems, then today they asked for a place to stay for one night, this usually turns into weeks, months, etc. and they never have money so I end up buying what they need and then getting myself into so much more debt than I can cope with. They are partly the reason I am having financial problems currently. I actually told them NO, first time in a very long time.

I feel like I have taken something back, I can't explain this, but feel almost exhilirated. Take Care Guys and Gals.

I hope u read this,
I just want to say that I really am delighted that you are being more assertive and putting yourself before others. It is greatly needed in this difficult time that you are facing. So I am so happy you are looking at the more positive side of things.
I find that by helping children in need- it give me great courage to go on- children that are mentally or physically disabled know nothing but love- which a great gift- therefore they have taught me a lot in life.
I hope things turn out magnificantly for you- after all this time- it is surely owed to you and you most certainly deserve it.
Just mind the little dissapointments in life- they are alway around to test us- but proove to them you are better than them.
Much love to you,

Dit is goed wys hulle jou tande, moenie dat hulle oor jou loop nie, want heel moontlik wanneer jy hulle nodig het is hulle missing in action.

Staan op jou regte.
Geniet jou naweek.

Thanks all. I plan to have a good weekend. I told the deadbeat Dad that I don't need him or want him in our lives, I will and can manage without him, so I am going into this weekend feeling a sense of relief.

Well done BT,

It is by doing things like this - standing up and not being trampled over - that you will grow by leaps and bounds.

Have a fantastic weekend. Maybe spoil yourself a little!!
