that we’re the only person that is going through a struggle or that has a struggle or that has been in a struggle but when you find individuals that are willing to say, hey, look I am human just like you’re human, I’ve done these things and I’ve been hurt and I made mistakes, and the longer I live I am going to continue to make those mistakes but thank God for His mercy and His grace and for His guiding, and when people can actually touch and feel another individual that gives them hope that encourages them that lets them know that they’re not alone, that if she can do it, then I can do it too, and if God did it for her then He can do it for me too and that’s why it’s so important to be transparent because you never know who may be going through the same thing you’ve gone through, or may be going through something and they can draw strength from what it is that you’re doing, I mean the strength that they need to continue to go on in their journey, regardless of whatever it may be. And I think the beauty of it is that when I am able to be transparent, they can see that I am still here that I’m still living, breathing, smiling, and what they see today, is what they wouldn’t have seen years ago, but what they see today is God’s glory and He cleaned me up to make me who I am right now, s ѡӊéѡ䰁ӊé䁝͠)͡ݕЁѡɽ՝ѡаЁ͡éѥɔM)՝̤)ᅍѱ丁MݡЁ́ѡЁɕ݅ɑ)ɽЁԁٔݽɭݡ݅)Ёɕ݅ɑ)$ݽձͅ䁅ѡɽ́ѡЁ'eٔݽɭ)ɔɕ݅ɑѡѡЁ́ѼݥѠ)٥Ѽͽхɔͽ)٥ͥȁͽɅ)ͽѡѡЁ͕̰́ѡЁ́٥Ѽ)ͽ͔ѡЁ́ѡѡȁɕ)ͥՅѥѡȁЁͥՅѥɽЁѡ)́ѡѼݥѠЁɥȁѡ)ͽ́ɕ݅ɑѡ͔ɽ́ɔ)ɕ݅ɑ ͔ѡɗé݅́ͽѡѡ)׊eɔɽаѡЁ́͡ݥ԰)ͼѡeɔѕɕ݅ɑͽ͡)ȁɴ)%аԁݕɔɽݹ5̸UL) ѥх͔ѕ́ݡЁ+ )=h5饹ɥ
