How to believe in myself
How I did it: When I was 7 years old on the first day of school our ela teacher gave us all big notebooks for a project that would last the whole year. We had to pick a topic out of her "magic hat" And when I picked my topic I got the hardest topic to write about in the class, other kids got butterflys, or pencil(Im sorry if this sounds strange but my teacher was a hippy ^-^) Well I got me. Since a kids journey in life is to figure out who they really our it was difficult for me. I didn't know what to write I didn't really speak out much in class and I was pretty shy but other than that I couldn't think of anything eles. As the year ended I kept going and for 10 years I wrote things down Like artist, amazing friend sometimes I wrote journal entrys. But as I did this I put more positive than negative and after a while I had pages and pages of positives(dont mean to sound full of myself, if thats what I sound like) I remember I was 10 when my parents got in this huge fight. my father started yelling at my mother and finally my mother just said Get out and he threw a lamp on the floor and left. I cried for hours and hours and thought why me am I unlucky, hated what did I do. For days I didn't leave my room and had few meals brought to me by my mother but when about a month or so(dont really remember) I had to go to my parents court to see who got to have me in there care, The judge called on me and said "child who do you want to be with?" everyones eyes went on me.
