Category: Motivation / Inspiration
In my life, I've done a lot of struggling and surviving, but most people don't know when I go through it, even if they were there. They just see happy me. This isn't because I lie and keep everything bottled up, this is just me. I am relatively happy most of the time. I aim for a life of comfort. It doesn't take much to make me smile but it takes a lot to keep me down. When I see people struggling through tough situations, I want to help. I am a natural motivator, I push my friends and family to always do the best they can and I help them when I can. On my journey through life, I've been on many emotional rollercoasters, and at this point, I have found that there are few life situations that I can’t relate to.
I’ve been through a lot in my life. I started working at 14, I’m the oldest child, and I have four siblings. I’ve worked as an Artist, Office Manager, Admin Asst, Executive Asst, Legal Asst, Host Card Asst, Medication Asst, Teller, Cashier, and who knows what else through temp agencies. I’ve worked at a department store, grocery store, cookie store and a pretzel store. I’ve stuffed envelopes and I even sold knives door to door. I survived a life-changing illness, came out of the closet, lost loved ones, helped raise children, and I’ve had long term relationships with both men and women. I’ve been laid off twice. I lost over 80 lbs in a year and kept it off (Naturally - No surgery). I have an estranged father and a new stepfather. I’ve lived alone, in the ghetto, in the suburbs and in college housing. I’ve been abused, robbed, and more than once, I nearly died.
So if you are having a hard time, talk to me. I know how life can be, I understand confidentiality, so your secrets are safe with me. If you need some advice, I’m sure I can help you find your way. I am a very understanding and reasonable person. I want to see everyone succeed.
