Shining a light on the dark subjects of anxiety, depression and abuse.
Shining a light on the dark subjects of anxiety, depression and abuse.

I have been blessed with a life full of struggle. It wasn't the worst life. It wasn't the best life. But it is my life, and I have embraced it as my own and that has made all the difference. The struggles I have been given are a gift to me. A gift that I am to learn from and find a purpose for. There is not a person I can pay or a university I can attend that could possibly provide me with the education I have been given through my struggles and for that I am so thankful. Though I may weep for the child who had to endure, I am proud of the adult who has triumphed. The struggles that have made the man that so proudly stands in the mirror before me, could have just as easily destroyed me had I allowed it. I use to ask God, "why me? Why do I have to go through these things?" I finally understand that these gifts of struggle aren't given to just anyone. For some reason I was chosen to be blessed with them and it is up to me to figure out how I can take these raw materials of knowledge, experience, and emotions and build something positive with them rather than a wall around myself. This is surely my purpose in life. It has ignited a passion within me to a depth I have never before felt and seems to be pulling me down a path that has no logical destination. Yet I feel an odd comfort knowing I need to follow it and believe it will lead me to where I am suppose to go. I guess this is what you call faith.

I decided to start a website and share my story in hopes of helping others overcome their struggles and find a way to use them productively.
