My life had been full of clichés. I was surrounded by people that loved me yet I had no love for anything but myself. Those thoughts were stronger than my immediate circle would ever be. I managed to attract the exact type of people I was, broken. I began to involve myself in undesirable behavior and subsequently squandered all of my accomplishments. My life has been a journey of ups and downs, but I am so grateful for the ride that has ensued. Today I can very easily say that I have been transformed as a result of intentional inward viewing of self, that I am back from broken.
