It was such a difficult time in my life and I was struggling to hold myself together. I felt confused, conflicted and as if there was no one I could open up to. I didn’t feel like anyone could understand how I was feeling. I remembered how my younger self would share with all my friends (or those whom I thought were my friends), but I was now in a different place.

A puzzle consists of many different pieces which fit together to create a big picture. Like a puzzle, we all have our own unique roles to play in life. God created us each with a specific purpose in mind. In a puzzle if you try to insert the wrong piece no matter how many ways you try it, it will not fit.
