There were a series of unfortunate events that happened to me during my youth stretching into my early 20s. Most of which I don’t care to mention on this forum, but if you’re close to me, I’ve likely shared it with you.
Many of these things created in me an almost overwhelming sense of worthlessness, self doubt, shame and great sadness that still at times affects me even now.
Through all of it however I always had some semblance of hope for the future and a vision that somehow I could be of great benefit to the world…but I had no clue how someone as worthless as me could ever be of real benefit to anyone aside from just trying my best to be a decent person to those around me (and many times I even failed at that).
A completely random injury when I was around 20 years old changed all that…
