It's really hard to tell without seeing a full product. With that said, I think the personal statement about being a teacher would have the best potential for growth and the personal statement about being a victim of domestic abuse would have the potential to be very unique, but very difficult to perfect.

The cautionary advice I give you is try not to overly romanticize/embellish your personal statement. I know this might be useless, but I think you should go as personal as you feel is necessary, keeping in mind that you don't want to be classified as 'just another sob story.' I don't really think a bright line exists for what is too personal, but if I were on an admissions committee, I'd like to see detail and personality of a person through their statement.
