It was never just one experience that “defined” me – millions of experiences all contributed to who I am today. The childhood abuse I experienced, inspired me to become a more loving and caring human. The abusive experiences I went through as a teenager, inspired me to become more compassionate and forgiving of others. The abuse I experienced as an adult reminded me that those who hurt others are only acting out their own inner pain – they don’t need more hatred, they need help.
It was all of value. It all contributed to who I am today.
What happened to you and how did it affect you?
