“I realized that the best thing I could do was to let you see me as a woman, just like you. A woman capable of making good decisions and a woman capable of making bad decisions,â€ Long said. â€œInstead of condemning myself, I can use what happened as an opportunity to minister myself to someone else going through a storm.â€
