I became what i am today when I was 10. When it comes to the past, it has the ability to suffocate all of your moments of happy thinking to bad right then and there.
I can't do this!
I remember the precise moment because it took a hard toll on me one day after school. I had just gotten off the bus and my mom soon after told me to pack my bags, I instantly knew something was wrong.
4 x 9 = ? 12 / 5 = ?
As I was packing my bags i remember feeling confused and lost. I felt as if I were as lost plane in the ocean not going to be found. It was bad. My mom told me I was going by myself to live with my other grandma i barely even knew. I had to leave my siblings and my mom and my grandma I had lived with since I was born. I was devastated.
I lived with the grandma i had hardly known for a few months, I still had not heard anything from anyone. I was still confused on why. I changed schools, had to meet new people, had to go to this place almost every week and they would ask me tons of questions I couldn't even answer. After a few months, I saw my family but i still lived with my other grandma and it made me sad. Long story short i got to go back a little after a year.
This most definitely changed my life, but it also taught me how to be more independent . Without my siblings and my mom and grandma i didn't really talk much I kind of just kept to myself most of the time.
The age of 10 made me what i am today: Independent, hard-working, determined to make things superior.
