Is your family different? Have your parents divorced? Have you done things that you are ashamed of? Did your mom leave when you were young? Did you ever know your Dad? Whatever the environment you are in, or come from, looks like, it doesn’t have to define who you are! It may explain certain things about you, but you don’t have to let it define you! Like the beautiful flower springing up from the dry cracked ground around it, you are capable of being so much more than your past. Do not lose hope! Finally, no matter where life has you, it’s important to remember that there is a brighter future out there no matter how dark things might seem.
