My name is Tia and I’m an 18 year old student in Southern California. I was kind of thrust into the deep end of adulthood without swimming lessons, and I’ve been struggling every day to keep my head above water.
Most days, life as a “young adult” is exciting and new. I have so much more freedom and responsibility to grow into the person I’d always wanted to be as a child.
Other days it’s much harder.
But that’s okay, because that’s just life. Life is a cycle of great times and hard times, this cycle turns you into the person you’re going to be. Just because yesterday was an especially hard day, doesn’t mean tomorrow will be too.
That’s what keeps me going, the idea that no matter how awful today or yesterday was, I have a whole new day to make it the best day of my life.
