This Is a New Me

My whole life, the only thing I could think of was giving up. It’s like there are only so many things that can hit a person at one time while growing up. Especially when the person is so young. People say just because I’m a teenager, I have nothing on my plate, meaning I’m not going through anything. That isn’t true at all. My problems started at the age of 5. And I have always let them get the best of me. But not anymore.

The fact that I’m such an isolator makes things worse. People say in order to get something or get somewhere you have to open your mouth to get it. And I don’t know how to do that.

But this time, I’m going to make a change. Being locked up isn’t going to help me get anywhere any time soon. I’m going into my senior year and I’m going to stand out. Being the little innocent, quiet girl is cute, but it can only be used in certain places and at certain times.

As my school’s Peer Leader my job is to open my mouth and say how I feel, and that’s exactly what I’m going to do.

My anger and attitude problems aren’t going to get me anywhere. Often times I can’t help it because of what I grew up with. And sometimes I don’t notice it, but it is now my job to be happy and stay happy because you can only live life once, and to live life always sad and frustrating isn’t healthy and I’m going to wake up one day and regret it.

It will be a different me going into 12th grade. I notice I am growing up and that means that I’m not getting any younger, so why waste time on things that aren’t worth wasting time on?

I feel that I was put in this world to make a difference, and that’s exactly what I am going to do.
