I never want to be defined by what someone has done to me. Yet at the same time, I have no shame about what I’ve lived or who I’ve become because of what was done to me. I am a strong, passionate, caring, empathetic, powerhouse woman. It’s important that the suffering ends with me. I tell my girls all the time that the world is good. I won’t allow anyone to take away my passion for life. And that is my greatest victory.
