Try to Be Strong

By June 23, 2020No Comments

I’ve been through similar things and some different [to others who have written on this site]. I was poor till age 7, I was in foster care for 5 years. I was abused by my bio parents (i’m adopted). I tried to kill myself in 2018. I can’t say I get what [others on this site have] gone through. I’m not a praying person but I will try my best to pray and I hope [those who are struggling]  get through it. I will tell you that things will become reminders and some things will hurt, but try to be strong for your family and most importantly yourself.
