I was absolutely angry. I mean, I’m a very faith-driven person, and so I hear the words “God wouldn’t make this happen, if there was a God he wouldn’t do this.” So, I was mad, like I had just started going to church, like, “what in the world, why is this happening to me? Because I want to know why, I want to understand the big picture.” And I had a tiny little glimpse then of what the big picture would be. Now I understand; now I see the big picture, but back then I did not. And so, I was very angry at the fact that I felt like I was surrendering my life to something greater, and that something greater was making my life more difficult. And so, I wanted answers, and I fought back, and ultimately, I got the answers. And, it was like once I got those answers, it changed everything. It was like, “okay, I’m going to use this for good, I’m going to turn something negative and the anger into something positive.” And, that’s what I have done ever since.
