Throughout all my battles both physical and mental I have been destroyed, defined and strengthened by what has happened. However it has taught me some valuable lessons:
WIthout destruction there can be no rebuilding; stronger and better.
Without definition the edges and margins become blurred and you lose sight of what is important.
Without strengthening there will always be the opportunity to slip back to where or what you were.
Experiencing any of these emotions is not a bad thing it is what you do with them that is important.
