"Before you judge my life or my character ... put on my shoes and take the path that I scoured, live my sorrow, my doubts and my joys. Scroll through the years that I rode, trip where I stumbled and lift up just like I did. and then, only then you can judge. Each has its own story. Do not compare your life to others'. You do not know how it was the way they had to walk in life. "
