My first dream job was to be an astronaut. My parents told me to be a bagger at a grocery store. I wanted to play basketball for my middle school team so bad, my parents couldn't give up their time and money. I got a letter from STANFORD in the 10th grade for an internship at one of the best educational institutions in the country.. my parents told me no because it's in California. My parents hid my letter from the University of Miami that I received my senior year in high school, it offered almost-full ride scholarship information AND an account set up for me with a password and everything... I found my letter 6 months later after my account expired. My parents made me stay at home after high school and attend community college so that they could keep control over me. They called me a financial burden and a bum without a job at the age of 18 right after I graduated high school. I applied for my first job as a dishwasher and my "dad" told me they would never hire me. They hired me. They made me feel like shit for smoking weed and starting to drink alcohol. Even though I was an honor roll student and I passed my SAT with a 1720 the first time without even studying. I worked full time jobs and full time college and even picked up a car payment on top of my own phone bill. I was busy 70 hours a week, 14 hour days for 2 years and I was still a piece of shit for staying out a little late after work to smoke a joint.. it was stressful but I graduated, but not b4 being kicked out 2 weeks prior for being a "crackhead". My best friend @goodvibetribe710 and his family took me in as their own. I moved to Alaska and conquered my depression in the Arctic circle. It was so nice to get away from my toxic family. Then I made the mistake of moving back in for a year. I had to walk 2 miles each way 5 days a week to work at a fucking taco Bell. My parents have SIX cars, I wasn't allowed to use one and they would even drive past me as I walked to and from work without even offering a ride. Their maliciousness made me who I am. And I'm not my father's son. His words. Not mine.🖕 My generation is stronger and more loving than they will EVER be.
We are the leaders of this new world👊
