Everything is not for everyone! Control the vibe! The people you let in & confide in should be people that can and will hope and pray with you, believe with you, fight with you and celebrate with you.

Get a good support team because you will need it. Also eat apples regularly to help with nausea. - Charyce H.

Lean on those who love you and don’t give in to fear. Believe in your future. - Iva G.
