This one is difficult. I had an abusive childhood, and I still carry that weight with me. It have a severe impact on who I am, and I am still struggling with it today.
But I guess I also made me who I am, it shaped my values, and my view on the world. It made me very aware of unfairness, and unkindness, two this I cannot and will not let pass.
I am proud of who I came to be, so unlike her in every way, and although that was not the easy way to chose, I am grateful to myself that I did.
