I’ve lived a challenging and difficult life. I've experienced the pain and humiliation of sexual abuse. I've tasted the anguish of heavy drug addiction. I've been looked down upon and chastised for my sexual orientation. I've felt the persecution and torment of self mutilation. I've been captive behind 2 foot thick steel doors with nothing but my thoughts and regret. These are just a few of the events that have changed my life for the better. I got angry and decided to change! I've felt the grief and heartbreak and my calling is to now help people who suffer as I did; to free them of the bondage of their minds and their past. If I do not embrace my calling and give back and help my fellow humans, then all the pain, struggle, misery, and disappointment will be for naught. I will not waste an examined life! I challenge you to do the same!
