So what do I do? I wish to give younger folks inspiration and wisdom. I wish a simple, persevere, work hard, and your dreams will come true would suffice. Not so at all. You need a plan and the right people surrounding you. Or you can end up like me or homeless looking in the garbage for food.
Down on the ground, starving and in pain, I wondered did I ever have friends or family or was I hatched? Don’t end up like me alone without a safety net of people who care. Friendships require nurturing and take years but well worth it when trust and loyalty are present.
When I say don’t end up like me, is not about self-pity or self-deprecation. Life is what you make of it. I made a mess out of mine. Don’t do the same to yours.
