The ones who make you feel like everything is fine when deep inside they are breaking you down. I can relate to this. I understood his character. Whatever has happened to me in the last 10 years, the judgments and the comments… people look at me and think I’m overconfident, someone who’s not insecure, someone who doesn’t feel bad about trolls but They forget that I am human too and these things affect you.

So my story of a girl coming from one world to enter a completely foreign world and somehow navigate and survive is proof that things do work. I am very grateful to my husband for always being with me.”
