We all have a path that God has predestine us on and we have some choosing on how we construct and live our life. I believe that I am a different person know than how I was in the past. In the hurt and no purpose in the world, I was lost and frustrated at everybody and myself. I had a hard time being nice. My transformation started when I gave my life to God and believed in him.
