Hello and welcome to Reflections of Art and Glass! My name is Dawn and I’m here to answer all of your questions about relationships, as well as address all of your worries. I’m 44 years old and currently work as an accountant for various local clients. Dealing with so many people each day, I have a real drive to improve their lives in any way I can. I’m definitely what you would call a “people person.” That’s also why I run this blog in my free time.

My Life Journey

Life hasn’t always been easy for me. It took me a lot of blood, sweat, and tears to get to where I am today. In addition, I made and lost many friendships along the way. One of the greatest trials in life is realizing what is truly important, as well as finding people who share the same values as you. Growing up, my peers didn’t appreciate a good education and quality time with family the same way I did. These relationships became strained over time and I felt rather isolated. I kept trying to connect with people that I couldn’t see eye-to-eye with, which resulted in a lot of heartache. Once I became more established in my career, I had a better idea of who I was and the type of people I need to have in my life.

How to Find Yourself

Sometimes, before you can really build meaningful relationships with other people, you need to have one with yourself. Not all of us are used to looking inside ourselves and discovering who we really are. However, once you have a better idea of who you are, what you want in life, and what you need, you’ll know what type of friendships will create a positive impact on your life. I firmly believe that this is the key to finding happiness with other people.
