Family is important to me: in spite of our differences and the mistakes I've made, I have an amazing mom and dad who support me and help me through it. I have a very loving circle of friends, thankfully a few of them are too nosy for their own good. It shows they care.
It took me a while to appreciate my mistakes for what they are: learning experiences. And by learning, I became wiser, smarter, savvier than I was yesterday.
