I enrolled to my local college, made friends but I haven’t had the time to really have a bonding with them cos I was working during weekends so the friendship didn’t last, I finished my course and enrolled for a new one, this time it’s an evening class, made friends again though they’re a lot older than me due to the type of class I have chosen, friendship didn’t last too cos I was working 12 hours a day 7 days a week so I have no time for a social life at all. Whenever I was lucky enough to have a day off, I would rather stay home and save the money that I was about to spend for my family due to financial status and maybe because I don’t like being questioned of the things that I did and the people I was with.

The  kind of life that I had is definitely not what I wanted but I am thankful for it cos I know that there are a lot of people out there who are struggling more and have a bigger problem than I have. Who and where I was is absolutely my choice cos I believe that sometimes sacrifices are necessary so that you can deliver your obligations and responsibilities which I can proudly say that I have managed to help my family and my relatives to have a better life. I have sacrificed my social life for five years and you can imagine how boring my life has been, I have a lot of people around me and I am still in contact with my friends back home but by the end of the day I do realize that I don’t have anyone I can talk to about how I really feel, well there is but she’s thousand miles away.

What and where I’ve been played a great role on where I am right now; I have a great career and a more secure life, finance wise. Remember that all your hard work and sacrifices will pay off and you will benefit from it in the future.  After all that I’ve done for my family and the personal sacrifices that I did, I think I owe myself big time.

Everything happens in God’s time and I think  it’s time for me to go out there, make friends and live my life ’cause everyone deserves to be happy and so do I.

    you’re 17, going to school and working 12 hours a day 7 days a week? wow! you need to slow down my dear. you’re only 17! you should still be going to school full time, enjoying the company of your friends, feeling carefree, etc. you’re missing out on a lot of things. hey, you only get to be a teenager once. don’t let those so called “responsibilities” rob you off of that chance. it’s never easy to transition from social changes in life, moving to different places, meeting new people, adjusting to different cultures and norms. sometimes it helps if you sit back and watch for a while, feel what’s around you, then embrace the new. but don’t forget who you are, where you came from, how you got there, and the people who were with you along the way. good luck! enjoy while you’re still young to cherish all these things. been there, done that. 🙂
