My ex abused me emotionally and verbally, sometimes physically.  It was an on-going thing, but after I left 3 years ago when he tried to give me a stroke hours after giving birth to our daughter - I've been working ever since then to NEVER allow anyone to control or manipulate me like that again.  He still tries to manipulate and control, but I'm getting much, much better at standing up for myself.  I always saw the best in people before him - now I don't.

 Yes, my sister died unexpectadly last week.  It damn near killed me. I learned that there is no promise about "tomorrow".  I learned to NEVER end a conversation with anger and how easy it is to say "I love you".

Yes... my best childhood friend died in a freak mistake when we were twelve, and I spent two years in a very VERY abusive relationship with a psychopath who almost killed me more than once (my own diagnosis, but hey, he fit the criteria....)

 growing up and traveling in different countries, opened my eyes to understand other peoples belief in religion, life, and culture. Now I am married and have 3 kids, I teach them what I learn and see, and take them to the places and countries I traveled and lived before.

Uhm, long list of them. 

The highlights are abandonment, molestation, abuse, emancipation, DV, education, deaths and births.

How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young,  compassionate with aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong, because sometime in life you will have been one or all of these.  George Washngton Carver

Absolutely.

The birth and survival of my twins.

I now perceive the world in a completely different way.
