Transitions—Part 5

I’m gonna wrap this little series up this week—with a poem I wrote. I wonder what I’ll write about next. Maybe a combination of different things. But one thing is certain—I’m moving forward with life, and I’m not going back. @donnalhsmith #transition #refreshingstreams #amwriting TWEETABLE

Healing from Jealousy & Envy — Rejection Issues REVISED Part V

Rejected people are selfish by nature. Because we need to have acceptance. When we get something we want, we feel that’s when people accept us. When we’re denied, we’ve been rejected.  #rejectionissues #rejectionsymptoms #rejectionhope TWEETABLE
