"You live, you learn, you die" Denise Nicole Johnson 2011 We spend our entire lives trying to live for others and making sure they are pleased with us that we soon forget how to live our lives for ourselves. in doing that we lose ourselves, dreams are destroyed, hearts are broken, and dreams are crushed. pretty soon we are no longer living but alive. we become robots lifeless are submissive to others command. we hate ourselves and blame ourselves for what they have done to us. it takes years to find and forgive ourselves as we begin to live but God doesn't allow us to leave until we have done so.
