I've overcome neglect and deprivation, abandonment and abuse.
Things with my dad were pretty good until I won an Academy Award. He was really loving to me until I got more attention than he did. Then he hated me.
I've triumphed over addiction.
I do take responsibility for it. I admit to having a problem. I have been to numerous treatment centers.
I've purged myself of bitterness and anger and remained open to love.
