"You become. And everything that's ever hurt you doesn't go away, but quiets down, settles a bit underneath your skin, and you realize you can't make any pain go away. Some things happen that leave permanent holes. That's okay. You can conquer them, rise above them, fill them with a new part of yourself, and move on."
