This is Virginia Burton.
If it wasn’t for the tattoo on Burton’s neck, you’d be hard-pressed to tell that these are both photos of the same person. On the left is when Burton was addicted to drugs. She’d been addicted since the age of 15, and had been incarcerated three times.
However, Burton completely turned her life around. She captioned this photo with the following on her Facebook page:
How about that for motivation? I honestly thought I’d die on a park bench with a needle in my arm or by gunshot to the head. I would’ve never in a million years thought my life would look the way it does today.
Stop selling yourself short. You don’t know what tomorrow might bring so you might consider starting today.
