Thank you for sharing these insightful truths and putting into words what self-discovery and self-acceptance are. I was enthralled with the story and could not stop reading until I was finished. Our life stories are different yet at every moment I could relate and knew I have had moments like this as well. Thank you for sharing your experience and inspiring others to find themselves as you have time and time again. I am grateful to have met you and learned from you over the past 3 years. You are an inspiration.
