Stuck on the thoughts of life and moving so much had me in a dark hole. So much kept weighing me down and piling on. It was great that my parents had two kids when I was already in high school but that was hard on me. To add on, I lived in a city where there is nothing to do and had no friends. So my mindset was driving me down the hole.
But the difference between people is that how we face it or how we solve the problems. People may choose to run away, to hide, to deceive themselves. But escape can’t help anything. The truth is the truth and it was already settle and unchangeable. I always want to escape problems, because I don’t and I am afraid of facing it, and I know I need to be stronger, but how?
Honestly, being here made me wish a thousand times that I would’ve focused on being someone inspiring to young and older generations a long time ago. Before coming to Job Corps, I had days when I was so depressed, I just stop doing what was right and from that point on, the street was the only I saw myself. The family was my enemy, friends were no longer there, at least the ones I thought I had. I didn’t want to talk to anyone because I had nothing positive to say. I can honestly say my biggest mistake I made as youngster, was me giving up on school.
I feel as though I need to work on trusting others more, and following-up with situations. It is very difficult for me to trust people. Although, it could be considered a good/bad thing based on the situation, I want to be able to open-up to others more, and it is something that I am working on. There are also a lot of times where I refuse to ask for help because I think I have the situation under control. When in reality I need some sort of extra help.

I have had tough hope once, I had to move to a different state and start to get used to the new place. Moving was hard and took a long time to move everything to our new house. My new house was hard to get used to because it was different and I wasn 't used to it which made it hard to sleep and I had to leave my friends behind and I would have to find new friends. Making new friends was hard because I would be alone until I found new friends and I would have no one to talk to so I would be very quiet. Usually I would always be talking to a friend and I am only social with friends.
School that is all I know for now, taking baby steps that will lead me to take a big step with my life. Hoping that just focusing on living and being open to new ideas will help me to the path that is destined for me. For the future I know that as long as I have the desire to continue my education I can find the right career path for myself and that I will find myself in the process. One of the hardest things to admit to myself and others is that I don’t know what my purpose is. Although, when I say that I am wrong, I do know what my purpose is.
By not stepping up and later regretting your decision, when you look back, you would only see regrets rather than joyful memories. I needed to understand that if I keep living for fear of being judged, I wouldn’t be pursuing anything I want in the future. With a changed mindset, I was ready to start opening up. Step two: taking action. As every journey would start, I took baby steps.
I am talking about my moving day. I was moving from mesa to San Tan Valley, it was a very long and boring day for me. The only thing is that I was just 13 at the time; it was a very difficult move because my family and I needed to put stuff in the U-Haul. We also took a long time because my mom and dad needed to go to work and I am required to go to school and study, this move was on October 25, 2013, it was a really sad day. Not only because of the move it was because I have friends that I still talk to today but it is harder to go over and play sports or video games, my other problem is that you have to remember your home you were in for four years.
