Stand your ground honey. Stand your ground, do not allow the world or your family control you. One day, they will have to leave. If your follow their edicts, at their departure, you'll be left with nothing more than regrets. Bonnie, you are ENOUGH. You were created by God, in His image. God never makes mistakes, so be proud of who you are and be proud of what you bring to the table. There is only one you. Don't stand back and allow others to walk all over you. Remember the movie, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon? You are a hidden master of your life. Your life is written by God and yourself. Chin up, head high, and be spectacular. Let confidence be your skin tone. Haters are a plenty; don't allow their hate and jealousy bring you down. You have people who love you for who you are. Never give up and keep on trucking. Remember, you have been through a lot, and you never gave up. Keep standing up, keep working hard, and please LOVE yourself. At the end of the day, you only have God and yourself. Stand strong and stand your ground.
