Over three years ago I had reached a breaking point in my life I was 20 years old. I felt so miserable yet I had just graduated high school two years prior and something just didn’t add up. Why was I so unhappy? I had finally got the fresh start that I wanted. I had finally found a way to kiss my childhood goodbye and all the insecurities that I had dealt with. It came to me the choices I was making at the time. I still had my employer from high school I was still working for her so I could continue to go college and keep up with appearances though deep down I had been as sad as a dead rose. It wasn’t just working on some of the choices I had been making such as not eating enough not having a healthy stable relationship with people. How do I break free after so long? I began to ask myself these questions in the spring of 2018 aka my last season ever as a Walgreens clerk and as a miserable individual. I didn’t know it yet but my whole life was about to make a huge turn. Whenever I went to work it was horrible no food for 6 hours aka I would go to 7 eleven and have the same hazelnut iced coffee because it held my stomach. It was a work problem so at the end of the spring I had the option of returning for the summer season. I remember stuttering as they had asked if I was returning because the truth was I had reached my breaking point. When June 2018 came I had went to my now former boss’s office when she gave me this snotty attitude and I had lost it but instead of screaming and yelling like a crazy person. i spoke as an adult and told her I didn’t want to work for her anymore and I ran out of that office out of the building down those stairs. She had crazy eyes and I just remember I couldn’t believe I had finally said no and patted myself on the back. I had no plan that summer except my savings were still OK. I had finally felt free as a bird and freer than ever. Not only was my nightmare over but I was beginning a new stage of freedom and adventure. That summer when I started getting the emails about yoga studio. After I quit my old job I had to realize to break free I didn’t just need to break free of my job. On the other hand, I needed to break free from my old life and the hood life. I cut off all contact with the people from high school and my childhood. I need to start a new life for myself that summer. Before January 2019 the only people I called were my mom or my father. On January 19th, 2019 my whole life changed forever when I met Danielle in Manhattan. It is also the first time I’m using the phone for 3 years to communicate with people other than my parents. The beginning of a new era and beginning.
