How Innocence Gets Broken
We all have a story, some with more pain or joy than others. I'd like to think that all of the lows that I had at the beginning of my life is the reason for all of the highs that I have now. The sad truth is life is a series of storms and beautiful days, and while the problems I have now are nothing in comparison to the problems in my past they still hurt all the same. My earliest memories are from the age of two, yes two, vivid memories that I can see clearly in my 26-year-old mind. The happiness I felt, the love that surrounded me from my parents, my families joy and playfulness. Who could ever foresee the storms that were about enter my life, but not just mine, my parents' also. You see my story is not just the struggles I have had to overcome but also my parent's struggles because in their messes and victories were the guides of my life.
