I Think I Am

In my life, I've been through a few things that have distinctly changed me while at the same time I got older. When I was younger, I was felt a bit of a disconnect with my family like no one could understand me and they never took the time to ask. This led to a lot of rifts involving somewhat physical altercations between family members. I held on to a lot of hate for a long time, a lot of resentment towards my family. For the longest time, I couldn't wait until the day that I could move away on my own and seek some much needed therapy. Things changed in July 2006, when I had brain surgery. I think it's so strange that people only express how much they love or care when you are near death. Anyways fast forward to today, I don't have any hate or resentment towards my family, but I just feel like I want to live for myself. I want to accomplish the goals and dreams that I set out for myself. I've been through a lot with my family and in terms of my own health and it makes me understand how life is rich to waste. Although, it sounds selfish, I really feel like putting my happiness first and that still involves moving away.

People who really love us would always want us to put our own happiness first. It should make them feel happy that you are happy :)
