    I will use myself as an example for this prompt. I was severely beaten by my father growing up. This has led to a lifelong battle with difficulties in school, low self confidence, depression, and other things. I could have chosen to perpetuate the same behavior with my own child, but I made the choice to be better than that, and I have never hit my child. I wish I could say that my childhood experiences made me stronger, and I suppose in a way it did, but I have many lasting effects from that portion of my life.
