A reflecting outlook of my past year experience being on my own.
I just realized something, I have been in this Apartment for a whole friggin year!!!! WOW!!!! I don’t even know where to begin, I have become a man in this span of time. I have set goals for my future on a mass scale, I have taught myself discipline more than anyone else probably could have back home. I have grown leaps and bounds because of this experience, and using a word like self reliance truly defines what this has become for me. This is what anger does folks, and don’t let anyone ever tell you that you can’t make something happen using it. Acting on being just absolutely fed up with not going anywhere, or doing anything. But I guess for all that time, I only had myself to blame. I have become a caretaker, and have fell in love with an animal more than I ever thought possible. I didn’t need help!! I did this on my own!!! And I can say that with all the pride in the world in myself. I am emotional writing this, but it just needed to be said. I thank you all for allowing me to share it with you, and hope for more opportunity’s to do so in the coming years.
