I’ve always heard the phrase, “people never change.” I believed it up until recently...
People do change. I am living proof of that.
For 17 years, I’ll admit. I’ve messed up. I’ve messed up big time. I’ve messed up so many times that I’m surprised I’m still living. Seriously.
But suddenly losing my mom and best friend did a number to my brain. It sounds weird, but it's true. With them, my sense of family and friendship vanished.
What I did was push any family and friends away. I threw myself at anyone for attention. I threw myself into my work to forget. Heck, I threw myself into dumpsters where I puked my brains out after nights of drinking.
Think of any negative word to describe a relationship you wouldn’t want. That word described me pre-2019.
But now? Things are different. I’m a new me. My lease on life has been renewed.
If you’re reading this and struggling to be who the person you want to be, I encourage you to read my story. Change is possible. Just believe in yourself.
A rollercoaster wouldn’t be fun without a few bumps along the way.
