I don’t really know how to start.

I feel like this might get a little emotional. Just sayin’.

I was the three in four; I’m now the one in four. It seems like society is telling me that I’m now a bad person, that I’m a statistic, and that I should question the value in my future. It hurts so much.

But I’m not going to let this one thing stop me from living my life.

I made a mistake. I learned from it. I’m ready to move on—I’m ready to live my life. My future is informed by my experiences—including my mistakes—but shouldn’t be defined by them.
