And it's true. I'm not grateful.
Though I've had help, I wasn't set up to succeed. It wasn't all handed to me.
I motivated myself. I worked. I studied. I earned my grades. I stayed out of trouble. That was me. I did it. Me.
I am, however, appreciative.
Because of those positive people in my life it wasn't as hard as it could have been.
I know I don't say thank you often, but that's only because I feel like they should know that I am appreciative for what they've done because I'm doing well and I'm happy.
