I always knew I was stronger than “the average bear”. Perhaps being a red head, I had a built in reputation of fiery, opinionated and being strong willed to live up to. Or maybe I deliberately put myself in a situation that the only way I could survive was to use and hone those skills.
Regardless of the circumstances and who or why they were created what developed was a woman with strength. Although I often wasted that strength trying to please and control others, I did develop it! Never in a million years did I imagine that I would have to direct the strength I had created at myself. And yes maybe I am a bit crazy, it would not be the first time I had been accused of that, but I have this nagging feeling there is something inside of me that is important, that someone or a lot of someones are looking for. Something that is going to take an unimaginable amount of strength to realize. I have no idea what it is, but I have this feeling there is something real here that the world needs.
