My Life Story

I grew up in a sheltered environment. Middle-class home, raised by my mother and grandparents until I was six years old. My mom and I moved out in 1994, just before my sixth birthday.

I realized how hard it was for a single mother to raise a child from what I went through. Our lives were lower-class (we got by with what we had). I was never spoiled, but I can't say that I was missing much. Growing up, there was a lot of abuse from people who I considered to be "father figures" in the absence of my father. I could say that I grew up knowing how life should be from what my life lacked (a father, friends, stability). Growing up, we were always moving. I never had a chance to make friends.

I started going time when I was 14. Never really had a job and felt like crime was the only way to get a head start in life. I never liked any of it, I just did what I had to do to survive.

I look back at my life and wished that it would have been different. Bet you know the phrase, "it is what it is." I can't complain about how my life has been 'cause it won't change how it will be. All I say is that I've learned a lot from my past, and it's taught me a lot about my future.

Maybe this blog will teach you something about your life too.

As always,
David Stevens
