Don’t you want to be free? Don’t we all? So why do we waste most of our time doing shit for other people? Why is it that we never work on anything for ourselves? Then we realize 10 years later that we haven’t accomplished anything in our lives. That’s if we realize that the system has contained us, but most people go on living their life never amounting to anything or building anything for themselves, except build someone else’s dream. Shit is fucked up. The whole system has us contained in a box without any way to get out, and the deeper you get, the more this life swallows you up whole. How are we, the ones who come from nothing, suppose to make it in this world? Everything is against us education, the law, the economy, etc how do we find the freedom we need in order to survive? All I ever wanted was a little hope just to make a difference in my own community, luckily I got that, but what happens to those individuals who feel like nothing is going for them? How do they strive for more?
When I was younger all we ever wanted was a little money so that my family could manage to keep their head above the water. But instead my mother worked 3 jobs in order to stay afloat. I was very fortunate to be able to have a mother like mine to make it out, but most of my friends who come from the same environment never did. Those kids who don’t who don’t make it out get swallowed up by the same system their parents were consumed by. They fall down the same path with the mentality that they can never accomplish anything. Our society isn’t designed for people who come from nothing to thrive. But I said fuck that and went out try to find my own path in order to make something out of my life. I cant fall into that same system my parents fell into, now praying that they get a paid day off. Where’s the living in that? I want more for them and myself, I cant just sit there and watch my mother grow old while she works 45+hour weeks. I owe them more than that.
People think that just by getting a degree is going to get them far in life, which in some cases it can be true, but if you read between the lines these degrees are basically worthless now. Most of these institutions leave the poor in debt after graduation because most of us can’t afford these tuitions and are forced to gather loan debt. Not to mention most of the loans that most of us acquire go on to follow us for 20+ years. That cant be the end of the line for us. We have to strive above it and find a better way to succeed in this system. Surround yourself around individuals who want more out of life and work together to build something. I don’t know about you but I don’t want to be working the rest of my life just to enjoy the last ten years(if I’m luckily enough to get 10). I want more for myself and my family. There’s so much out in the world than just a 9-5 job. I want to be in charge of my own life, I WANT TO BE MY OWN BOSS. You have to do everything you can to get out of that mindset where you feel entitled to anything. I was once there, but not even hope can save you there. So instead I got to work.
A year ago I left college my senior year, I left my family, and I left all my loved ones just to make this one dream of mine real. Some might see it as a mistake because from the outside looking in it looks like I threw my life away, but you’re wrong. I’m incredibly happy of the decision I made. I’ve never felt so complete in my life. I finally wake up every morning and do something I truly enjoy. But if I would’ve never left I wouldn’t be here today. I’d probably still be at the same miserable job going to same miserable classes to get a degree in a career field that was never meant to make me happy.
All I’m saying is just follow what you’re heart truly desires. I’m not saying every day is going to be perfect, but I promise life’s approach is completely different on this side. If you don’t have any hope or support I SUPPORT YOU. I’m here for you, I believe in you. I don’t care what it is you do as long as you put your heart in it then I’m here with you. There’s days where you’ll feel like throwing everything away, but I promise if you stay consistent there’ll be little rewards along the way. It’s not easy, but at least you can wake up every day and be free. Don’t let anything hold you back from accomplishing something your heart truly wants. Because you’re more important than anything else in the world. And if you need the support in order to take that leap, I’m here for you. Go out into the world and build something for you and your loved ones, not for anyone else. Take back the life YOU were granted with. Be free.
