    Or So My Therapist Says!

    With my tragic past, I realized I could have so easily went the "other" way. That's a bit scary to think about... I could be a mean, hateful, bitter, manipulative *****. I could have turned into a monster, hurting others, just because I was hurting. But, I didn't...

    Well...

    Since my entire family (which I have disowned) are either alcoholics, drug addicts, thieves, manipulators, cheaters, con-artists, or ******, I think I turned out pretty ok. I'm none of the above.
