I have been through many hardships and I have taught myself many coping skills that I have used to help me through the challenging times in my life. Everything that I have ever been through I know that there are other people in this world that have been through far worse than I have ever been through and I understand the feelings felt in their heart. I never felt sorry for myself or have ever taken life for granted. I use every challenge I have ever faced and met as a learning experience and when we learn we grow. Learn to face and meet every challenge that you are faced with and when you do, you will be eliminating future problems .
