For me, I was molested/fondled by my older brother when I was 8. And because of him I have trust issues, I don't like physical contact (hugs especially, and anything that has to do with sex, which might explain why I'm still a virgin), men intimidate me, I have low self esteem and I have anxiety and was diagnosed with symptoms of depression (my doctor and therapist don't want to fully give me a diagnosis since I'm not an adult yet and my depression could just be from me being a teenager and blah), and so on.
So yeah, how about you?

i moved out of my family house an had to support myself for a while by waking up at 5am everyday and working a hard labor job.. it helped shape me into the disciplined person i am today and it made me have an infinite amount of respect for my parents0

My ex took all I had. He left me homeless and penniless. I struggled for years to rebuild my life and regain my strength. I now have back more than I lost.
I'm a stronger and more independent person now. So the past has defined me in a postive way rather than negative, but that's only because I've prevented it from destroying me mentally and emotionally0
