Being a survivor.

First things first; a little disclaimer: We don’t normally do this, but today we’re posting something that’s already been posted elsewhere. You can see the original piece here. When Anna sent this in, she told us straight away that it had already been posted elsewhere, but after reading it, we knew we wanted to post [...]
