"I needed that wake-up call in my life. I needed a turning point, and that's what God was giving to me . . . All this terrible stuff they say to you, it breaks you down . . . [But] once you're back on your feet — if you ever make it back on your feet — that's the ultimate achievement."
While I understand bad things can have good outcomes, referring to it as a "wake-up call" makes it sound like she's blaming herself. Do you think it's well said, or are you asking say what?
