I’m 18 years old. Capricorn. Westchester.
I have a past and I’m proud to finally say that I’ve changed. I no longer do the things i did. I have found myself and can finally accept me for me. For the longest time i couldn’t accept myself, and didn’t like myself. I kept everything to myself and was known as being very sheltered. I kept my past and issues to myself because i thought sharing them would put a burden on people. But i realized that talking to the people who care is the most important thing to do. Within the past year I’ve begun to open up and share my past with people who care. It was one of the most difficult things to do but it was worth it. After sharing my whole past I’ve been able to respect myself and not let all my emotions get stuck inside me.
For the longest time i had forgotten what being happy meant. I forgot what it felt like. I kept everything to myself and let my past dictate everything i did. My past has taught me a lot. But the most important lesson I’ve learned from my past is that your past shouldn’t control your future, it makes you who you are and it is always with you, but you control the future, you can be the change. I could be the change. I am the change. I’ve changed. I’m Julia I have a past I’ve made mistakes and I’ve accepted those mistakes, and I’m looking into the future with an open mind and heart. <3
A lot of my change is thanks to my friends for helping me see who i really am but without one of them i don’t know if i’d truly understand all this change. so thank you.
