It was so easy to focus on the present.
As a child, I was hopeful in my future and found life to be pleasant.
I loved making up games and visiting my family during my long summer break.
However, when I began attending my middle college high school, I was shaken awake.
In reality, the world was much darker than I had originally thought.
It was all the good things in the world I slowly forgot.
I knew that in order to take high school and college classes at the same time I had to grow up fast.
If I had the same mentality as elementary school me… well, I wouldn’t last.
I began putting stress on my work, never giving myself a break.
Negative emotions became a volcano, leaving lava in its wake.
I finally learned about wellness and how to manage emotions.
It took a long time, but I stopped the emotional explosion.
