I'd like to take this moment
to say thank you to Steve.
He has given us a place
to call our own, a place to share our greatest happinesses, and
A place where we can hold eachother up, while the rest of the
world tries to tear us down.
And recently, I've realized:
none of you even know my story.
But, if you are willing to listen, I'm willing to tell you
So here goes
parents got divorced when I was two years old. They had
thirteen years of happy marriage before my mom decided to cheat
on my dad with his best friend. After leaving m dad shortly
after cheating, and dragging us with her, my dad became an
alcoholic. He needed to bury the hole in his heart torn out by
the one woman who he had ever truly loved, barred from her and
his family forever. After leaving my dad my mom decided to move
in with a man she barely knew, who quickly became known as our
step-father. Rude and obnoxious, he changed our mother from the
once beautiful and caring person, into a prissy snob. Me and my
older sister Toni spent our childhood missing our dad and
resenting our mom for tearing us away from him. Soon my mom
began to drink as well and it felt like our whole childhood
revolved around alcoholics. If we werent coming home to one, we
were waiting for it to begin. My sister gave up her childhood
to raise me, so I could have one of my own. She always kept an
eye on me and made sure I grew up nice and slow, the way she
always deserved. We grew up together, keeping eachother afloat
in a world threatening to drown us. After fourteen years of
being with m step-dad, my mom found out he had been cheating on
her for years. Ironic isn't it? She left him, taking all of
her things, and unknowingly growing back into the person she
used to be. My dad began to heal the hole in his heart when me
and my sister moved in with him not too long ago. The past few
years have been the hardest in my life, falling in love for the
first time, having someone break my heart for the first time.
Dealing with the love and loss of my family, and
"friends" who stabbed me in the back. I've
learned lots of things lately. But what I have to say to all of
The greatest gift I've ever
recieved is the ability to be happy.
I wish it on every single one of you.
Directioner or not.
Girl or boy.
The only thing I ask for you?
Listen to a person's story before you judge.
You'll never understand where a person's been if you
haven't walked their journey.
Thank you so much
for taking the time to read this if you
