I admire people's transparency. I should probably be a little more transparent with things. I had a professor tell me I should speak up more because I have a story I can share with people and experiences that many could learn from. I appreciated him telling me that, but I can't say it's made me speak up more in class.
I went through a lot this past year and have only told a handful of people the horrid details of it all. I did realize that there are many others who struggle with what I went through. It was quite eye-opening and completely humbling. Praise God though. He is good.
