Everyone has a story to tell. It was time to let the world know about mine. I worked at several jobs and lived in many places, searching for my life's purpose. The secrets within me were sheltered by my exterior wall of existence, which created havoc later on in my life. How I wished I had discovered my self-worth earlier to prevent ongoing destruction. I realized I needed to grasp a positive perspective on my life lessons. I can only hope that my story will spread awareness to the hearts of others.
