  1. I understand that people’s lives aren’t always peaches and cream but that is still no excuse for bad behavior. You can choose to turn your life around and make it a better one. What gets in the way of most people is self pity and pride because they don’t want to ask for help and sometimes you should. I know “it’s easy for someone who’s had an easy life to say that” Honestly, no one can judge someone by the smile on their face or the clothes on their back because you don’t know the life they’ve lived unless you have lived it yourself. Everyone’s story is different but your past doesn’t have to define who you are or who you can be. You have to make that choice for yourself. If you don’t like how life is going change it. You create your own destiny. But actions do have consequences. Never forget that. After all Newton’s third law of motion… for ever action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Which holds true to most anything. And with that I hope some day he realizes he can do so much more with his life then this.
