hi Jennifer, I like your writing, I think I can learn a lot from you.

when you mentioned girls were thrown away like used Kleenex, I think of how my ex threw away me and other girls, now he's moved on to the next. I want to show God that I'm more than just a used Kleenex, I need to be strong, and I want to help others who's been used, hurt, and abused.

I am so sorry, I thought I replied to this comment.

You are strong. You can help others who have been hurt and abused. One way you are doing that is by sharing your story that I am still reading.

Keep going for it! :)

Remember you are awesome and thanks for your comment.
