My giving up every weekend for months to keep a promise to Mikey and be there for him. Making sure my family’s computers are running lol. My ultimate wish to become a teacher and pass on the knowledge i’ve gained to help the generations after me. Everyone looks for something to live for. Something to run towards. A reason and end goal to say “this makes it all worth it”.
I have found mine. To be the one that anyone can come to and get a little life push that they need. That’s my personal advancement path, how close are you to understanding yours?
