You Can Change! (2 min read)

“I thought you’d be dead or in prison” was something someone said to me after a few years of no contact

It’s true my teenage years and early twenties had lead me into a colourful lifestyle (to put it mildly) but a lot has changed over the last 20 years

So many people had me marked as a type of person and if I had continued to believe the tags others gave me I probably would now be dead or in prison

But instead I decided to become someone else; I decided to become me

Change can be hard

But boy it is so worth it

I was completely lost in a world of drugs, chaos and violence

And I escaped

Not through rehab or counselling but through making a decision

A decision that my life could be of value, that I could become a better person whilst connecting with others along the way

Upon that decision, I took consistent small steps (and I still do today)

Yes having good people around you makes the transition easier but not having any support isn’t a reason not to take action

Make the decision and start taking small actionable steps each day – you won’t regret it

Keep smiling & speak anon
