I created a lot of chaos in my life by being attracted to “bad boys,” men who were not interested in my own growth as a person, and who acted as if women couldn’t be trusted and that love wasn’t possible. I, like many women before me, decided to try to change a mind or two, and was emotionally abused in the process. That was before I began volunteering at the local battered women’s shelter, an experience that was life-altering in many ways. I finally focused on my own purpose, and not only began liking the life I was creating — but also myself.
I hope my story can help you.
