  • I quit my desk job and pursued a career I am passionate about.

  • I don't care what it is, I'm happy for them.

  • It's gonna be scary, and it has to be scary, but sometimes you've got to make that jump.

  • Why not be scared first towards something you're, like, passionate about?

  • Overcoming depression has been a big feat for me.

  • Not letting it back in to control my life has been a tough and daily struggle.

  • But looking back, I can't believe I've lived this many years feeling happy and loved.

  • That is incredible.

  • That's a great thing to be proud of and I...I went through a lot of periods of depression in my life, and so coming out of that, I totally feel this.

  • It's a great secret.

  • I'm proud of the fact that I chose to confront my first partner about whether or not he truly care for me.

  • We'd been dating for about four years at that point.

  • I'm glad I didn't waste any more time with him.

  • You go girl.

  • You know from this, she was obviously able to learn that this person wasn't giving her what she needed and you know, this person wasn't caring for her, so I'm happy for her.

  • I found God.

  • I found comfort in those around me.

  • I found peace.

  • I'm sorry that you were in pain and while you were trying to escape from your pain, someone inflicted more pain on you.

  • I'm glad you were able to overcome that and find something meaningful to you, and...

  • I think that's really important.

  • I have been abused my entire life, mentally, emotionally, physically, sexuallyand still I choose to see the good in people and to give as much love as I can.

  • You know "love" is a word that gets thrown around a lot.

  • But when you can go through pain and still leave yourself open enough where you let someone love you, and you give it. That's strength.

  • And so that's very beautiful.
