“Wow…I can’t even start to imagine what you must’ve been through.
Even though this has made you to the special and good person you are today, I’m sorry that you’ve had to experience so much pain, hurt, hatred and anxiety.
You must’ve felt so unwelcome and not appreciated as a human being (although this might be my own projection…).
I think it’s very brave and mending, putting down your story in writing and art. Even if you wouldn’t help another person with this book, you’ve reached your goal: you helped yourself and that’s the greatest gift you can give yourself.
To me it has put my own story to perspective…”
