  • Age: 20, Location: Blacksburg, Virginia

    When were you at your weakest:
    I was cutting my wrists because the blood running down my arm quieted the demons in my mind and in my heart for a little while.

    When were you at your strongest:
    I held my father's hand as we buried his father and he became an orphan for the rest of his life.

    How are you feeling now:
    I feel tired but I feel together and whole for the first time in a long time.


  • Age: 48, Location: Western Australia

    When were you at your weakest:
    I would have to say from the age of four when I lost my dad as the result of a car accident up until my mid 30's. Throughout these years I have been abused by those closest to me. After my dad died, I was treated more like an inconvenience and as time went on I had two step fathers, both abusive in their own way. The latter did the most damage. Leaving home I was searching for something, I was searching for someone to love me but I had a warped sense of what love was so I ended up in one abusive relationship after another. I think I have gone through all forms of abuse at one time in my life. I believe these are the times I was at my weakest.

    When were you at your strongest:
    I know this is going to sound like a contradiction but at those lowest times in my life I think I was at my strongest also. I survived. At times when things seemed like there was little or no hope left I managed to get through them all. At those times I was able to forgive, walk away and not hate, its not my nature. I am the person I am today because of those experiences. I am no longer as hard on myself as I used to be.

    How are you feeling now:
    More understanding of myself, knowing what I want to do with what is left of my life. I feel blessed in many ways. I still have days where I struggle but I can draw on what I have been through. Each day brings with it new challenges and new opportunities, those are what I look forward too. I know that I can help others and that is my goal in life, to help those heal, to give a helping hand. I am back doing a degree which will help me reach my goal.


  • Age: 45, Location: Spain

    When were you at your weakest:
    When I was at my weakest. I used to be very sensitive, sometimes I cried I felt a sadness inside.

    When were you at your strongest:
    When I was at my strongest: I felt really happy and glad I felt good inside and really healthy. I like to share my happiness with my friends, family.

    How are you feeling now:
    I am feeling happy and glad. I like a lot Christmas for me the best holidays ever. I feel really generous, I like to help others.


  • Age: 47, Location: Htfd, USA

    When were you at your weakest:
    When I lost my job and had no unemployment comepensation, then found out I could not get heath insurance.

    When were you at your strongest:
    When I decided to go back to college and made the Dean's list

    How are you feeling now:
    At peace because I know that God takes care of all things and everything happens for a reason.


  • Age: 52, Location: Mission Hills, CA

    When were you at your weakest:
    I was the weakest when I was raped and realized it was a situation that not only could I not escape immediately but not in the short-term past the event itself either. I knew it would take years to be truly free because I was not going to become an addict or prostitute but I would have to build myself into someone who could figure out how to escape not just from the continual abuse but to create a space someplace in the world where I could exist the way that I believed that I should.

    When were you at your strongest:
    I believe I am the strongest now that I have ever been. I have become stronger and stronger and it feels like it is an exponential growth.

    How are you feeling now:
    I feel empowered in that I have actualized my own motto that my happiness is not dependent on what anyone else does or is. And I can do things on a daily basis that are meaningful to me.

    When were you at your strongest:

    How are you feeling now:

  • Age: 27, Location: Belgium

    When were you at your weakest:
    When I was starring my teenage years. I was taken advantage of,sexually. When I was 19, I fell for someone, but he just ended up using me. I did something I never could have imagine I would do, I still feel such shame thinking about it and I hope God will forgive me. He made me perform oral sex on him. I have never felt more betrayed, ashamed, used and misled then I did then. I never wanted anything to do with him ever again. The pain I felt and STILL do is indescribable. NO ONE should ever feel that kind of hurt.

    When were you at your strongest:
    I 'survived' a broken relationship. My ex fiancée broke the engagement and all my dreams and hopes were shattered, as if I didn't mattered. He left me, dumped me like a bag of trash. And it came all of a sudden. I survived that. I stayed strong, I had my family and friends who comforted me, and I know that was my strongest time.

    How are you feeling now:
    Tough question. How I'm feeling now? I do feel blessed & surrounded by my closest relatives and friends... I have everything that I need. I have a roof over my head, food in my stumach... I have freedom to do what I want whenever I want. But still... Lonley: I haven't got a partner, on who I can depend, to share my intimate feelings with. I feel as if I'm not worthy of having one. There is a void in my life, that I can't fill. I always dreamed of being a young mother. I am 27, almost 28. I have no one or nothing that really matters - no one that I can take care of. Lonley. Wanting to share my love with that special someone - before the love I have will flow away..
