Everything that you went through, everything that you overcome, every tear that you ever cried, everything that you have suffered through has made you who you are. So you have to embrace it and grow from it. Love it. Don't be ashamed of it. Don't hate it. Understand that there was a purpose for that situation. There was a reason for that hurt. There was a reason for that thing that you went through or the thing that you're dealing with

Be who you are in your heart
