A challenge i have is that some times I feel like am a burden to my cousins, friends and family and even lack independence. A few months ago my car was down and I depended my cousins and friends for rides. I felt so terrible. I just thought i was bordering them much. This was a challenge to me because i did not have my personal program. My program depended on their availability to give me a ride which at one point was so frustrating. I was doing two jobs and had daily activities to carry on. My pastor is my spiritual leader. She orientate me and her continuous prayers for me is a mighty support. My daughter makes me feel recognized. My cousins supports me financially, materially, and socially. My friend guides me, gives me a lot of ideas to help me make decisions on related issues and supports me morally and socially. The media/press not only keep me updated on the events and issues around, they also provide me with statistics. All these support are very important as they influenced my well being and daily life and i can not imagine how possible i can sustain life without them.
