…attached to that person. Kudos to my friend LaVon Thomas telling me to stop living in who I was and walk in who I am now. When and/or if I date it’s with an open mind.
I think the major change is that I’m quieter now. I’m a people watcher and I don’t feel the need to be the life of the part or to keep people laughing so my weight won’t be an issue.

Selena: Yes, because I have more energy, more get-up-and-go to things with my son than I did before. And it has changed me because I’m more aware of what it’s like to be mistreated.
