A Bit About Love
I've worked in mental health and volunteered in prisons and alcohol treatment. Here's the one difference I see in human beings in terms of their success in life. Either they know they were loved, or they don't know they were loved. Your circumstances don't matter anywhere near as much as having at least one person really convince you they love you beyond anything, and through everything. That's not to say hard times won't come, just that people who know they are loved navigate better. Somehow, they eventually decide they are worth saving.
