About Life As You Make It
I am a learning to be assertive and to make my own life my way.
I used to be a passive person with poor boundaries. This led to dead-end jobs, abusive relationships, boring dates, underachieving and constant disappointment.
I’m tired of that!
I am learning to respect myself, set boundaries, speak up about my wants and needs, and start achieving.

I really have read each book at least once.
