I have pin pointed my dependency on Noemi back to my first homework assignment. I was in Pre-K, all I had to do was to color a picture of a clown holding some balloons. I finished my homework and showed it to my dad. And here comes Noemi and says "Vickie, you have to outline it first then color it. Here give it to me, it looks ugly but I can fix it." How was I supposed to color ever again without her there to fix it when I mess up. And when she left, how was I supposed to dress myself without her there to fix my outfit if it didn't match.
I did it though. I still love her and want her here with me but I don't need her anymore. I am one step closer to being independant.
