I don't think people change. I think they definitely mature. But I think the essence of what I am today is the same as when I was five years old. It's just maturity. I've become a healthier, fuller expression of that essence.

I do believe in the old saying, 'What does not kill you makes you stronger.' Our experiences, good and bad, make us who we are. By overcoming difficulties, we gain strength and maturity.

In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.

The darkness around us sometimes seems all-enveloping, harrowing to the extent of defeat, one tough door finally broken down seems to lead to a thousand other shut doors - until finally the glory of emerging from the ashes, scarred by the trauma but unscathed in spirit, leaves you actually even more resilient!
