I spent a lot of time in the land of dark sorrow and loneliness.

All of us who have visited that land, for whatever reason, appreciate the truth and grace in your article.
Your piece is very encouraging, and gives one that boost to make it through another day! Thank you.
Very good, and thought provoking good work.
Thank you for sharing so much of yourself in this.

You did a great job of describing what you experienced at 13. My favorite part was the last part of the second to last paragraph - "Whatever the case, we must always remember that we are not self-sufficient. We need each other. We need God."

I thought the last paragraph had a very good sentiment, but maybe could be re-written to come across stronger (maybe "I know" instead of "I think").
