They say you can’t choose your family, but there are so many things in life that can’t be chosen. You’re born into a family, a religion, a belief, a lifestyle and sometimes you just can’t get out. You grow up based on what you were taught and sometimes you can’t get away because the loss is too big. Sometimes the freedom you seek leads to a path of loss, but sometimes that loss is yourself. You lose the love you have for yourself, the love for your goals, and the love for your dreams. You become emotionally unstable because you have to choose between your sanity or your family. You choose between being free or being trapped in someone else’s lifestyle. You choose between doing what makes you happy and worrying about becoming a disappointment to those you love. We all grow up and plan to become who we want to be. We set our life goals and we do everything in our power to make them happen. We shoot for the moon and we make our dreams a reality. But unfortunately for one girl, her life was dictated by the people who were supposed to protect her. Sometimes those who hurt you are those you love most.
