There is a horrible habit which exists in society. People feel obliged to explain every detail about themselves.
But no one else will ever truly understand how you got to where you are today. No one will understand your sacrifices, hard work, failures and painful lessons learned.
If someone judges you without knowing the facts, do not waste your time trying to persuade them. Their empty judgements reflect more on them than they do on you anyway.
No matter your history, you are here now. Your privacy matters. Your secrets are yours to keep. Your life belongs to you.
Anyone privileged enough to become a part of your life will respect and protect that too.
