What experiences in life helped you grow the most?
Its odd to say this, but my past has helped me and shaped me into the person that I am today.
I’m not advocating that people should go through a bunch of hard shit in life, but really? If I didn’t go through the things I went through as a kid and teen, I definitely wouldn’t have become who I am today.
Going through child abuse definitely made me strong, and I grew into a survivor, and not just someone who survived, but someone who has thrived.
Dealing with my mental illness has taught me a lot. It wasn’t always easy, and I lost a lot of good friends through the years to suicide, hell, I was almost lost to suicide too.
Luckily I survived all of my suicide attempts, and now, I am really glad that I did.
Being disabled I’ve also had my fair share of challenges, but I faced them all and pushed through to the best of my ability.
I like to think I’ve grown a lot, learned a lot, and am continuously learning even now.
