looking for a better way
by a lost soul
I am a 30 year old black male with 4 kids. I have no high school diploma &, I come from the streets of Balto. About 5 years ago I decided to change my life by finding a job and stop running the streets. Now, by me running the streets damn near all my life, I dug myself a nice hole and it was & still is very hard for me to get out of it, but I am not gonna give up.
My job doesn't pay much at all and it's really a dead end but, I do thank the lord for blessing me with one. Because how I used to live I could be in a grave right now or locked up. I am very tired and frustrated with my life and its hard out here & s--t ain't getting any easier.
I am trying to get some of my past removed off my record but it's a process & it takes a while. I feel like I am not moving forward. It feels like I am right where I started 5 years ago.
I really need some advice or maybe some motivation because I don't know which way to go right now. If you think you could give me some words of wisdom, I would kindly appreciate it. Thank you
