What was your plan for your life? What was it you were going to do? Did you do it?
My plan was to finish high school (did it) then move onto college. I had one picked up in upstate New York but even if I didnt get into there I was simply going somewhere away from here. I would do the whole college thing & see where things went from there.
Instead at 16yo I finally got fed up with the abuse from my parents & while my mother was beating me I got up & ran away never looked back literally still havent gone back or spoken a single word to her to this day 8 years later. This resulted in having an apartment with my high school boyfriend which of course didnt work out after that it was off to a homeless shelter for me. Turned 18 no more shelter, got another apartment & got into drugs. Partied but managed to graduate high school. After all of that had no clue where or what to do. Hung around then finally met my now SO & a year later got pregnant. Now I am a sahm to my 3yo.
I am happy with my life but gosh its not what I planned. I tried my hardest to endure the abuse & stay at my parents house until college but I couldnt. I tried to stay away from the drugs etc while in the homeless shelter & after but it didnt happen. I even tried college a couple of classes at a community college but dropped out. Sometimes though I wish things would have gone the way I had planned. Then maybe I would have gotten out of this state, away from the only place/area I've ever known, done some traveling, seen some of the world.
I know theres still time but gosh some days it seems like this is it for me. I sure hope that at least some of my dreams come true even though they are kind of different now that I am a mother. Sorry just having one of those nights.
