I've been through A LOT. Since I was a child. And I'm still standing tall. Most of the time people say I know what you're going through. But they really don't unless you've gone through it yourself.

I've been through a lot to know that when someone is having a hard time or feel like they want to give up I know I understand. I've been through that. I'm still in a battle but I know that I'm a good person even if I can't see it :)
