These Three Teachers of Mine
When something bad happens you have three choices. You can either let it define you, let it destroy you, or you can let it strengthen you!
In my case, I threaded all three choices. At first I let it destroy me for the despicable reason that I simply let it. For a while I was in such an abhorrent state that it defined who I am. But out of the ashes, I learned to pick myself up and rise above my destructive self. And in a sense, I was able to find my strength through my weaknesses.
