What makes us who we are

It’s not the great things about ourselves that makes us who we are, it’s our failures, and how we’ve handled them.

Most people, upon knowing I almost died  from a combination of anorexia and bulimia,  and subsequently was getting help in several institutions, would say that I failed. I’ve missed three years of high school, never went to prom, never even went on a date until I was nineteen..but getting sick and going thru all that was absolutely the BEST thing that ever could have happened to me.  i was able to write a book, which I hope touches others lives.  I was able to enjoy things I had always before taken for granted.
