Before, because of my economic situation, I used to live a bohemic lifestyle full of easy paths. I wasn't exactly a bad person, but I had it all.
A few years ago, the economy in my country crashed, and there were violent conflicts and delinquency everywhere. Roaming through the cities was like going through a jungle full of predators: Dangerous.
That was my food!
The situation was worrying me, and I eventually grew unsatisfied with my whole environment. I had big dreams, so I wanted to leave. Since I had trouble opening up to people, I had to bottle up every single emotion.
What should I do?
Because of my family's hierarchy in our country and our political involvement, we were captured and violently held hostage, I lost everything I previously had, including people, posessions and even my own mindset. I had been through some other things that helped me shape my personality, but never quite as big as that.
Now that I had been through hardships, I felt I was mature in a way not many people will ever get to be, and I saw the world from a different perspective. I became a more open, loving and level-headed person.
I love you guys
We love you too!
I moved to the US as a refugee because of other problems and became a hardworking, responsible person, who now strives for future success. After being through harsh things, I learned to appreciate things no matter how small they are and to see the world wisely, and now that I have huge goals, I can say I'm satisfied.
