Anger was the fabric of my being for the first 20 years of my life. This was because of how I was born. It was no body’s fault. It made me feel miserable and filled my soul with hate and fear. It made decisions in life that are easy for others, become a big struggle for me. Knowing something was wrong but not knowing what it was made most of those decision’s fill me with 20 years of regret.Most of all it made me afraid to include myself in most social activities. This ruined most relationships and whatever reputation I may have had. This in turn made me ashamed of who I was and made me a perfect target, for bullies in school. It took many years of hardships to become the man I am today.It took a lot of help from friends like you and I Thank each and every one of you. It is your love that gives me the strength to stand on my own two feet today. Thank You for giving me a flashlight in what started as a pitch black journey. I am now filled with hope and clean of all my fears. I could not have done it without you. Thank you with all my Heart!
