For many years of my life I was caught up in unhealthy relationships. It would have made a huge difference to me to have someone reach out to me on a personal level, rather than simply telling me what I was doing wrong. Now, more than a year into my recovery, I have the chance to be that person who reaches out. After experiencing the things I lived through, I want to help children and teens who are going through similar situations. I want others to know that, no matter who they are, they deserve to have all of the love, happiness, and respect in the world.
