My Realization

Hi Dr. Laura, 

I am 19 years old and have been reading your book, "Stop Whining, Start Living". After reading the book I compared some of it to my life. It made me look at my life and think about how I wanted to change the things that I didn't like. 

I had a friend who lied to me on a consistent basis. I kept that friendship going, even though it was a bad idea. It got to the point to where I decided to confront to my friend about how he had treated me. He must have been frustrated by the fact that I was right. He later blocked me from Facebook, texting and calling. For a while, I thought I was stuck with my depression. I wasn't sure if I would be able to shake this off.  

After thinking about it for a bit I came to a realization. You have always taught that if a relationship is not a healthy one, then it probably wasn't meant to be. Eventually I learned making mistakes are part of our everyday lives. We learn from them and move on. That's what I did. I've stopped whining and started living again!
