Through my life I've been through a lot. There’s a figure of speech that says "the good hearted go through the most pain" and I'm a firm believer in that speech. I’ve experienced so many levels of pain, where sometimes I have to ask myself how am I still breathing. I’ve given people the real me which is a loving, compassionate, generous, understanding and a respectable individual. Pain doesn't always have to be a bad thing, but it can bless your life in a way people wouldn’t understand. Pain can mature us to be better inside and out. My pain has taught me many life lessons, and those lessons I use today in my life. It's given me new perspective on life and to be more understanding to why things happen. I turned my pain into learning because as children, we were all taught to make a negative into a positive. You may look at it as easier said than done but it's all about your belief in yourself that you can turn the pain you went through into strength and to believe that you are strong. To give yourself the assurance that you can be anything you want to be and your pain is your triumph. You must believe to achieve, and I believe that all the pain I went through was a true test of God. Pain has become my victory, and one day I'll be able to uplift people and to tell my story that I didn't allow the pain to break me but that it molded me into the person I am today and I wouldn't change it for anything. Pain is my victory!
