It was in that past that he finally found the happiness and comfort he had always sought.
For too long he had allowed the lies and the abuse he suffered at the hands of his "caretakers"define his past. Now, he focuses on the positive things he did experience throughout his life, and in A Better Yesterday: Life After Abuse,he shares those stories'"stories of the kind people, loving animals, and heart-warming events that comforted him even in the darkest times, shaping him into the caring person he is today.
