Ania Windak-Taylor, thank you so much for your supportive words. You’re totally right about “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” — I always feel that being in the worst situations makes you almost invincible to any pain or hurt that comes your way.
I’m not sure how I’d be if it weren’t for my exp in China, but I definitely learned about real life there. And I now feel so grateful to be living here in the US, where people are so much nicer, respectful, and expressive with their thoughts.
That said, thank you again for opening up your thoughts here. :)
