And taught me a lot to be resilient and flexible.
Also taught me to really appreciate where those boys are coming from.
And to learn to share your feelings and to really put things on the table I was not I have changed they've changed me in it in a good way.
I'm where I'm much more open with my feelings much more honest.
With what's going on hand.
