My Past Makes Me Stronger :)

Being molested certainly was a horrible experience. I kept it to myself. @ 8 years old, I wondered why? Why me? Growing up was even tougher, I had suicidal thoughts. Ran away from home. I figured that I shouldn't be alive anymore for the pain is too much to bare. Never have I asked for advice, I practically thought myself. I said ' yea I've been molested and hurt. Yea I've been through a lot. But I can't just throw away my life.' ......... I didn't try to forget my past, I sorta well kinda embraced it. I know, it sounds weird. I don't dwell in the past, but I'm somehow grateful it happened. It taught me to be independent, to never give up. As Katy Perry said 'I'm a firework' ... My past made me stronger, it made who I'm today. And I'm proud of myself :)
