Hello ATS and BTS, recently I've been experiencing a series of bad life events, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. That's life. Sometimes, it
takes a toll on you.
Also, when you're feeling like you have no confidence, sometimes it helps to look back at the hardships you once overcame. It works for me,
sometimes. You look at the worst events of your life and think "Damn, if I got through that, I can get through anything. This is nothing to me. I can
So, that's why I'm asking. What's the worst thing you've ever had to overcome?
I'll go first.
Crappy childhood. An abusive stepmother and neglectful alcoholic father. Divorce. Three near death experiences, two involving cars, one involving a
group of adults threatening to murder me. Countless fights in school... attending an all-black school. As a slightly nerdy, slightly alternative white
girl, that was not fun. I got jumped. I got called every name in the book. I hated my life. Now, more recently, I get dragged into fights with my
family fights and wars a lot. I live with my fiance and room mates, and we may or may not be getting evicted. I love my kittens, but we have to get
rid of them. My fiance's mother got in a car wreck and got hurt. And, to top it off, just a day after coming home from visiting my grandmother, I
learn that she died shortly after we left.
But hell, I'm just fine. I don't give up on my novels and mangas. Sure, I'm struggling, but who isn't?
I can get through anything.
What about you?
