My world view has changed so much in the past year and a half...it's amazing. I wish I had words to describe how amazingly wonderful it feels to have learned and grown so much, and how cool it is to be able to look back, and say "you know what, even after all the shit that's happened, I'm doing pretty damn good."
It's probably one of the coolest things that has ever happened to me...because I realize that you know what, no matter what life throws at me, I can do this. I can make something positive, and cool, out of evil nastiness, and no matter what happens, I'll come out OK in the end.
I'm very thankful for that...I think it's one of the most valuable gifts I could possibly have.
