Hey guys! My name is Kellie. I am 14 years-old. I have wonderful friends and family, I play soccer, and I am in theater at school. I love music. I sing, dance, and play the drums. I really love my life. But it has really not always been that way.
When I was five years-old my mother passed away. After that things got really tough. My brothers and my dad developed serious depression. Everyone was always fighting. And I never understood why. I was only a child. Things got much worse when I moved. I was eight then. I was leaving everything I had ever known. My school, my friends, my life. This is when things got bad. My brother Matthew got really depressed. We always fought over everything. And at times he would become violent with me. When I was about 12, my mother’s death really hit me hard. I was going through the rough pre-teen years. I wanted to hug her more then anything in the world. I became really sad.
Many things helped me through those rough years. First of all, my family helped. They were always there for me. They would always offer a shoulder to cry on, It was mostly my Aunt Betty, Aunt June, Cousin Erin, and my granny. I could never thank them enough for that. What also helped me through it was staying positive. I always had hope for a good tomorrow. I would always try to stay happy. The biggest reason I did all this was because I know that my Mom wants me to be happy. And she doesn’t want to see me cry.
Stay HAPPY and POSITIVE. Everything will be okay in the end. If it is not okay, then it is not the end.
