I Hung In And Made It Work

Twenty-five years ago I moved 1,000 miles away, all by myself. It wasn't scary for me, until I arrived in San Diego. I realized that I didn't have a home, a job, and didn't know my way around. My aunt made it worse by discouraging me. She kept telling me that finding a job was hard and I would just have to go on welfare. At one point it crossed my mind to turn around and go back where I came from.

As scary as it was, as vulnerable as I felt, I hung in there and made it work. Less than a month later everything fell into place. I am glad that I stayed. Since I have moved, so many wonderful things have happened. It was all worth it.
