One of the most important women in my life once told me "Once your heart gets broken you know how it feels; you have that experience and you should never let it happen again." It took me a long time to swallow how truly sad a place the world can be. There was a hard line I had to cross, and I had to work very hard to stay alive. I spent my life one way, and now have to live in another. I have had to work my hardest not to give up, and that has been my biggest challenge.
