I came to this site because of Jason Ellis. I am trying to encourage someone who is close to me to give this site a try because they have stated that they need to make big changes in their life. I couldnt just take Jason's word for it, I needed to see it for myself before I reccomend it to someone else.
I am an only child of divorced parents, they separated when i was around grade 3-5...I cant tell exactly when becasue they fought for 3 years before they called it quits. This is something that took a chunk out of my self esteem but eventually I was able to deal with it. I probably didnt deal with it in the best ways, I became distant & withdrawn in my adolescence. I started making my self throw up in grade 6 and it continued until high school, where I also experimented with many different drugs. When I was about 17 I realized that I had to figure out what I was going to do with my life & make some changes, which I did. Therapy sessions with my high school councilor helped me a lot, but wanting to grow up & be independent was the main thing that made me change. I am proud to say that I have since been to college & no longer make myself throw up or take stupid drugs.
My future career is going to be in the travel industry (my field of study) I currently work as a front desk receptionist at a hotel but my future goal is to be a travel agent. I would like to stay in my hometown & get a job with an agency and take trips at least once a year.
I am currently in a relationship with someone 9 years older than me and I see him as part of my future plan. I want to someday buy a house with him and settle down together.I cant picture a future without him in it.
