I just recently had an assembly at my school featuring guest speaker, Chris Herren. If you are not familiar with him, I highly suggest that you go to Youtube and view one of his speeches. His speeches are extremely powerful and heart-pulling, and, today, I feel like a changed young adult. Ever since I moved from my hometown I have felt insecure about entering Wheaton Warrenville South. And from all this build-up of anxiety, I turned to drinking to solve all my problems. Truth is, it doesn’t. It will only make things worse, and today, I’ve promised myself that it’s time to put away the bottles. I broke every single bottle of alcohol, and threw it all away, along with my anxieties, and now I’m seeking help in counseling. I cannot tell Mr. Herren how grateful I am for having him talk to my school, and helping me understand where to start to fix my life and start all over.
“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”
