Let's Talk About the Good People

My life is my story to tell. I wish to tell the story of how I overcame the obstacles that my family presented. How I became a better person and decided to end the generational abuse with me. I want to talk about the people who positively influenced my life, those who showed me compassion when I didn't think I was worthy of it. Without these people I wouldn't be who and where I am today.

The teachers

I had some amazing teachers who encouraged me and taught me more than academics. They were patient, loving, and genuinely proud of my accomplishments. They pushed me and showed me that there was no limit to what I could accomplish. They encouraged me to take honors classes and told me I was a great writer. (Something I didn’t remember until recently) I honestly would not have tried so hard if it wasn’t for them.

The Lunch Monitor

I will never forget the lunch monitor who talked to me during recess. She was so kind when I didn’t have any friends. She noticed my hair was knotted and told me to bring my brush. The next day, she did the best she could to get that knot out and she took the time to teach me the proper way to brush my hair.

The neighbors

I had so many kind neighbors. There was the neighbor who patched up my foot after I stepped on glass. There were the neighbors who treated me like their own child. They answered any questions that I had about life, and they were kind and honest. They shared in my excitement when good things happened. They even showed up to school events for me when no one else did. I spent more time at their houses than I did my house some days.

The Friends

I got bullied a lot in school because I was shy and different. This meant that the friends I did have were genuine friends who meant a lot to me. They had my back, and I had theirs. We learned about life together. We had crushes, boyfriends, and breakups. We went through it all. I don’t know what I would have done without them.

The Boyfriends

I was lucky to have some very kind boyfriends in school. They were patient and loving, and we navigated the crazy teenage years together. None of them ever pushed me to be someone I wasn’t, or to do anything that I didn’t want to.

My Husband

The most caring and patient man of all. We have grown up together, healed our wounds together, and become better people for being in each other's lives. We have grown through honesty and understanding, allowing each other to tell the truth and express our needs.

My In-laws

They have showed me a love and kindness that I didn't receive from my own parents. I know that I can talk to them about anything, and they will be there to listen and help. My mother-in-law has helped me navigate motherhood and womanhood, all without judgment.

My Daughter

She has taught me as much as I have taught her. She has showed me that I am capable of more than I ever thought.

I don’t know who I would have become if it weren’t for these amazing people entering my life. I will continue to look at the good because that is what matters.

You never know how you are impacting someone’s life. Remember to be kind and do your best to make each encounter you have a positive one. You just might be someone’s reason for who they are today.
