My Story In a Nutshell

 There’s always going to that light at the end of the tunnel. I had to find it myself. I have had a rough life so far. I’m only fourteen years old. But yet I had to grow up by the age of about 11 to keep my younger sister safe from my mean dad and step mom. It was me and Madison my older sister and Asia who was about 7 in that broken down house that was in a very unsafe neighborhood. They didn’t treat us well at all. Going a few days without food and harsh things said to us. Yes it was very hard to keep going in life. Thinking if that was all there was in life.  I felt like I was rotting away in there. Not physically but me as my personality. I didn’t really smile or laugh in that house. I had a dark thought to be. See before all that I was a happy outgoing person. A person who would welcome anyone in with open arms and a warm heart. When I was there it was as if I covered my heart with barbed wire and put fences up. All the energy was drained from my face. I didn’t have my glow to me that I had before. I gained everything back from the about year and a half I have been away from that place. Yea I guess it was good to leave but there was a very hard thing I had to do before I could leave. Saying goodbye to my little sister Asia. She’s living with her real dad in a good home now but I haven’t talked to her or seen her since. Asia’s dad won’t let me speak to her. But its ok all I need to know to put a smile on my face is to know she’s out of that place they called home.

I smile again. I laugh again. Seeing other people happy makes me happy. It’s like I’m the old me. The person I was before I was in that place. But I’m the improved person. I am so proud of Madison and I that we didn’t give up. Healing yourself and your heart is difficult. But I didn’t say it’s going to be easy I’m just saying it’s going to be worth it.

Step 1.

See the good in things. I was watching a video on Zach Sobiech My Last Days. Him and his mom were at his sisters basketball game and his mom points out number 11 and said,” She has a funny run.” And Zach says,” Yea but she’s really good at this this and this.” He pointed out all the things she was good at. Not the things that was funny or bad about her. I’m not saying do that to everyone you see but don’t focus on the bad things about people and say school. Ugh schools so boring, I hate it. Yea but you’re being educated on the world you live on. Learning things about stuff you won’t learn anywhere else. Find the positives in things.

Step 2.

Surround yourself with nothing but good people. People who have a smile on their face mostly all the time. Because a person who is trying to heal needs people who can help them.  Who can cheer them up and help that person stay positive. So find a good group of people or family who is genuine.

 Step 3.

Protect yourself. This might be a little hard to follow so try to stay with me. When I say protect yourself I’m not saying close up and guard your heart with fences and wire. But when someone says something mean don’t take such offence to it. Your heart s such a precious thing you can’t let someone hurt it so easily. I guess a good way to say it is to put a fence around your heart. But a nice white picket fence with a gate to let the good things and people in but to keep the bad things out.

 

 Remember that light at the end of the tunnel? It’s there, I might be hard to see but it’s there trust me. God says everything will be ok in the end, so if it’s not ok then it’s not the end. In times it will feel like it’s the end, that there’s nothing better. But you are or were living how I was. Get out of there. No one on the face of the earth deserves to be mistreated. Because everyone has something special to them that should be protected. Live your life to the fullest and never settle for less than you vision of perfection. If your image of perfection is being a doctor living in LA, then don’t stop until you get there. Don’t settle for something that is not what you want in life. Be happy. It’s your life control it and love it. you never know how much time you have here so spend that time being happy and making others happy.
