    Its Not Easy Though...

    If I focus too hard on the past, or rather on specific events, I find that I'm not grateful at all that I was a victim. However, when I think about the how I ended up as the result of my experiences, I cannot help but be grateful. I've learned so much as a result of the things...

    I make appreciating life lessons a priority.
