I have always had a strong sense of self. I never had a lot of friends but, regardless I was always happy. One big thing that I always struggled with was conflict. I hated arguments. I could never get the right words out to say what I me3ant. I’d always struggle to get my point across when arguing, and get lost in my own words, making me seem like I had no argument. This caused me many issues throughout my life, because you always have to talk to people and they won’t always understand like how someone who is close to you might. I’d get so frustrated to the point where i’d breakdown crying, because no one would understand what I was trying to say.
Once my parents got divorced it changed the game for me. After that communication was absolutely necessary. We moved schools, houses, and lived with many different people. I had to adapt and become the voice of not only me, but me and my younger siblings, which made it even more important than ever. Now I had to become the voice for all of us, for the sanity of all of us, because I wasn’t gonna let us be left in the dust. It wasn’t easy, and it still isn’t, but each day the words become a little easier to say.
