I disciplined myself so strongly because I wanted change. I am so resilient. I always have been, but I didn’t see it until I had gone through treatment… I worked so hard to build up all my supports to be where I am today.
YESS was my support
YESS helped me with every single thing. They were my support. They gave me the energy and the courage to make better choices. They encouraged me. At the time I thought all the little things they wanted me to do were so small, but all those little choices were so good for me.
I am meant to help others
Thanks to all the staff and all YESS had done for me, I have found my passion in helping others. I am meant to help others the way YESS once helped me; to advocate and fight for those who feel they can’t do so for themselves, the way YESS had done for me.
