I was recently chatting with a good friend of mine who was having a rough time. She mentioned a person who went through similar problems but who chose to just roll over and give up.

In a moment of unusual brilliance I came up with an analogy that I want to share with the wider world.

Some people are cupcakes. Then they get a big hole punched in their lives. When this happens there are two things they can do. Either they can give up and live their lives as a squashed pastry or they can stand up, brush themselves off, raise their middle finger to the world and say,

  "Screw you all, I'm a donut now!!"

Normally I'm not one for vulgarity, but sometimes it's needed. This is one of those times. It's about taking back your power.

Things are going to happen. Good things and bad things. Nobody can change that. The only thing we can change is how we react. You aren't less because of what's happened to you, you're just different.
