Prologue

Some people believe everyone gets a second chance. Some believe that there are no second chances in life. While others don't want a second chance, thinking that their only chance to make things right and go there way has come and gone, stop living after their chance is up. They are still alive physically alive but emotionally they shut down. It doesn't matter what they do or how they do it, life to them just doesn't seem worth living anymore. People like that spend their days indoors, alone and just suffer in silence with their emotions and thoughts. For most it is hard to imagine living their life like an emotionless zombie, only alive to eat and sleep, with no other obvious action life.

The truth is that this life used to be what my life was like and was for a good year at the least. Most people couldn't tell by the way I was around them but once I got home every day from school, I spent my day doing homework, and sitting in a corner, just thinking and crying. I'm not looking for attention as most people think. I just want people to be aware that before they judge someone, they should get to know them. Before someone wishes to have another person's life, they should "walk a mile in their shoes".

On a positive note, after I received my second chance at life, Things have gone much better than they used to. It wasn't a straight and smooth ride but I'm happy where I am and the road to happiness just gets smoother. The only problem in my life right now, is figuring out what path to take next. It's like everything I do, happens for a reason and my future happens because of the things I did in my past. My only goal in life as of right now, is to be happy. It isn't as simple as it sounds.

Enough of my boring _______ (speech). Now that you have some insight of what this book will be about, I hope you go into it with an open mind. This isn't an autobiography, but more of a personal tale of overcoming one's mind and emotions, and taking control of life for a second time. Now come and experience a mile in my shoes.
