"I am sure your maturity, wisdom and inner fortitude was born from the the sorrow you've been forced to live with."
This is exactly how I feel. Instead of being a victim be a survivor. I have read alot of posts on here about how people have tried to take their own lives because of their problems. Here is a good quote by Viktor Frankl in his book about the holocaust "There is also purpose in that life which is almost barren of both creation and enjoyment and which admits of but one possibility of high moral behavior: namely, in man's attitude to his existence, and existence restricted by external forces.... Without suffering and death human life cannot be complete."
