I believe that you should use the bad in your life as an excuse to be your best self. i am 14 years old and i have not had everything handed to me like some may think, but i have not let that get me down.
when i was 5 years old i was put into foster care because my dad wasn’t around and my mom was not prepared to be a mother. I was in foster care for a little more than a year when i went to live my grandma. I had been through a lot during that time but i would still wake up with a smile on my face everyday. I didn’t let the bad ruin the good. Through the ups and downs i go to school and don’t let everyone see the problems i hide on a daily basis. If u met me and didn’t know me you would probably assume i had life handed to me. But as previously stated that is far from the truth. Instead of letting my past hurt my future i use my past as a source of enthusiasm, hope, and courage.
