What will it take for me to persevere?
I am currently writing a chapter on my move to Florida from Michigan. I got to the second page and I realized something. As of today, I have officially lived in Florida for exactly six years to the day. I was laughing at the timing. It was funny how that worked out. It's like my subconscious knew because I chose to write about my move; rather than finish another part of the book.
This chapter discusses a very impactful time in my life. I was leaving my best friends and family for the first time. I was heading to what I thought was going to be paradise. The weather was phenomenal, but this is when I really started to get anxious and depressed. When I left my family for the first time, I felt very alone. The loss of my mother would finally sink in. For the most part, I was lonely. I felt this way for months. This chapter will talk about these issues in great detail. I went through a lot of trials and tribulations during this time. What will it take for me to persevere? You'll find out when this chapter is done. Thanks for listening.
