This is my opinion.
I feel that everything I have gone through in life, the good, the bad and the evil has made me who I am.
Having a breakdown made me slow down and see things from others views.
I watch friends, watch how they act and how they treat others, people act a way for a reason from their childhood, through to there environment and even there relationships.
When they say things or act I try and think about them before I react, it’s not giving them a excuse or letting them off its accepting how they are.
They have to accept me and how I am the good, bad and the whatever!
