What do you have in common with these women?
One of these women was a victim of domestic violence as a college student. Another was attacked by her husband on their honeymoon. The third grew up in a household filled with domestic violence. And the fourth has never had to deal with anything like that.
All of them are beautiful, blessed and pursuing their dreams. Look, your past doesn't have the right to destroy your future. I don't care how dark it was, the violence is not bigger than your destiny. You run this.

No more obsessing over the wrong man or the wrong friends. These days I’m focusing on the right dream.
A few of my obsessions:

You are special. That’s all.
