I believe we were all born in this world with a definite purpose and nothing happens merely by accident. When I was still a child, I really loved to write and I told myself that yes someday, I will become an author! And my dream came true! There were various hurdles along the way and I also had a battle with my own personal demons. I was once addicted to alcohol and it became a barrier for me at some point in my life to achieve my goals but I didn't quit. I told myself I want to leave a lasting legacy to the world and share my talents, not waste my time being a slave to my addiction. And I did it! I quit being tied up to my addiction and now I am the one inspiring people to get up once again after a fall. My brother is also a patient and is undergoing rehabilitation and I wanted to share our stories to the world. As a writer, I know my mission is to inspire, to heal, and to awaken others through my words and that's why I decided to be a member of this forum- to be able to inspire and heal others after I have healed myself. I hope to give inspiration to you, people.
