I couldn’t believe I was finally doing it, leaving the only home I had ever known and starting out on my own. Everyone thought I was brave but I knew I was scared out of my mind.
Brave or not, I knew it was going to be hard starting out on my own, in a strange town with no friends or family.
Thankfully I made it, made new friends and got a good job and worked my way to the top, and now I’m so glad that I started out alone in the first place. It was the best decision I ever made.
