I am the way I am because ______ happened.
It's awkward phrasing, but I have to say I am who I am because of God. I could say my parents' divorce, issues with my dad, various physical and mental problems...but God has certainly molded me by using these things.
I've been an on-and-off churchgoer since high school, mostly off. I've loved God, thanked him, screamed at him, and denied him. But he's always been here for me, supporting me and carrying me all the way.
