I am adamant on writing my personal statement on overcoming mental health challenges. I briefly mention the cause of these challenges (2 undesirable events that occurred at pretty much the same time) and their effects in a total of 93 words throughout my entire essay.
-I want to preface this with a minor trigger warning, so if you get bothered easily maybe reconsider reading this.-
I mention coming to terms with my sexuality and mention something else through the term ‘inappropriately exploited by [someone]’. I summarize both in one sentence each.
I specifically want to inquire about the latter phrase, specifically it’s connotations, how it comes off, and if I should include it at all.
The rest of my essay discusses how I overcame my problems and used the skill and values I gained to help others in my community.
