I would say a lot has changed over this past year. but when I think about it, the only real thing that changed was me.
don't be ashamed of your past, love and embrace it. keep those pictures so you can smile and look at the good times. just because it may be over doesn't mean you have to forget about it. be proud and keep smiling :)
I love my past, I love my present, and I'm ready to love my future.
