What Separates True Friends From Acquaintances?

I am new to the site and love it! Please keep the stories coming. There is so much darkness and negativity on TV and social media, I applaud you for featuring women who have come from a difficult place and emerged victoriously. We need MORE of this! I just subscribed on Google Podcasts but I’ll come back here for the video version.

Grew up on a crappy diet as well. Just goes to show how reliant you are on your parents. Once you have spent two decades on this planet and eaten a certain way, it can be challenging to embrace anything but what you have been used to all that time. I broke free from my bad habits – thank God. Kudos to Jessie for changing things up after her diagnosis!
