I was so excited as I began to see that I could re-write a story in my life. So what does this mean to me? This means that I go to the core of who I am. Then I look at what I have said about the things that have happened to me. I take a very personal attitude about this. We can claim that our stories are very sad, and we made the life experience itself probably feel very sad. Yet, and this is the hardest part, did it affect us within our core? It is at this point that I have learned to love myself in a different way.
