The Resolve Has to Come From Within

“I don’t want people to feel sorry for me because of what I went through as a child.  That serves no purpose and it would not make me feel good.  Instead, I hope people will admire me and use my resolve as a role model for what I was determined to overcome. The resolve has to come from within, and I chose to use it to benefit me instead of inhibit me. I want people to know that my difficult past shaped my wonderful future to be what it is today. I want people to know that I came out the other end a better person”
