Abstract: For me, just like many other young people, growing up was a hardship. One need not look at statistics to see that we live in a cruel world. I grew up in a household where I didn’t understand the meaning of love, nor the bonds a family should provide. At school I was bullied and teased by the other kids. I grew up learning that I was never going to be good enough.
