Anyone who knows me well knows that for a long time I have struggled with what I wanted to do with my life. I have struggled even more with who I am and who I was meant to be. Sometimes I feel as though I am walking down the wrong path or I am not doing what I was put on Earth to do. But then God puts something or someone in my life to reassure me that I am right and I should pursue my dreams. Many people have doubts about where I want to go in life and what I want to do, but I do have a few people in my life who help me know that it is right.
God has only recently shown me what I am meant to do with every circumstance and experience I have dealt with in my twenty years of life. I had prayed for so long for God to show me and it finally happened. I made a friend who put everything into perspective. She helped show me that who I am and what I have been through should not go to waste. I have a special power with all of these memories and I should put them to use in the best way I can.
It is absolutely no coincidence that I love to write and I have lived the life I have. From abuse to depression to finding my happiness in this messed up world I have a special kind of situation. I can change people’s lives through the power of my writing. With her help and encouragement I have decided to write a book about my life. I understand that it won’t be easy, but it is my purpose. I went through what I went through because I was supposed to share it. It’s my story and I was meant to share it.
God has a way of putting people in my life to help show me the way. Sometimes these people aren’t the best, but other times they are. My friend is one of the few people in the world that believes I can do great things. She encourages me and motivates me. She is there when I need her most and she trusts me. That is something I am so beyond grateful for. I thank God that she is in my life and hopefully here to stay. So many people leave, and I pray she never does. I can’t remember life without her and I don’t want to.
She has helped me find and validate my purpose in this world. She has taught me that I am worth something even though in the eyes of many people, I am not. She has shown me that I do have a value and that no matter what I am never alone. She believes in me even when I don’t believe in myself. She understands me even when I feel like no one else does. I don’t deserve her friendship, but I am grateful God has blessed me with her. I am thankful God chose her to help me see my purpose and my place in this world.
