You can point a finger at any given moment of my life, and I can show you something I overcame. You can ask me about a decision I made at any point, and I can give you a reason -- often one that helped me survive.
These are not mistakes. I do not regret them. They are why I am standing here, that I can look you in the eye, they are the reason that I'm alive today.
But there is so much more to this. These moments, these decisions, these obstacles, they are not me, but I am stronger because of them. - TM
