A student I was counselling once told me that I should write a story about my life, because she thought it would inspire others and give them hope that things could always get better.

I don't know how much inspiration my words are capable of; but in honour of the students I work with - how hard I ask them to reflect on their worst experiences, how long I make them sit with their sadnesses, and how much I admire and respect their ability to trust me, a total stranger, with the most traumatic parts of their life stories - I gave it a crack anyway.
