Valerie's story is one of survival. Her extraordinary and well-developed survival instinct helped her navigate a life filled with turmoil, such as parents divorcing before she was a year old, being abandoned by her mother to the neighbors who became her foster parents and having an abusive, alcoholic step father. Valerie does not consider herself a victim nor in denial. Her ability to compartmentalize her life helped her to stay afloat and be a survivor. Valerie shares the following nuggets of life wisdom:
- you can get through it and get to the other side
- accept what you can and cannot control
- accept responsibility for things that are in our control
- go forward with your life
- there's nothing stronger than a broken woman, who has rebuilt herself
- seek therapy
- it's good to talk with someone who's unbiased
