From the time after my mother died, I am the best person I have ever been before. I am not the best looking that I have ever been before, but I am the best I have ever been before.
Maybe it is time for me to start working on being better looking, but that is not an acceptable reason to feel like a failure, I am not a failure, I am a success, and if a website, full of people who haven't met me in person, keeps me from seeing that, then I don't belong there.
I have learned a lot in this short week, so I don't regret it, but that is not reason enough to continue it if it sets me back.
Thank you so much for your e-mails and comments, they really helped me keep/come back to reality.
mood: much more Diana-y
