One of the reasons so many young people get into a slump is because they allow themselves to get stuck. They focus on what has happened to them instead of what could happen. They think about what they have been through and who has hurt them instead of thinking about where they are headed and where they want to go.
If you are one of those people, look in the mirror and say these words: I AM NOT MY PAST. Repeat it if you have to so that it sticks. What has happened to you, the choices you have made, those are behind you. Work through the pain if you need to, but move on. LET IT GO. It does not make you who you are.

Anyways, here is my point. You don’t have eyes in the back of your head. So quit looking behind you. You’re not going that way! Focus on your future. It’s wide open. Who do you want to be? What kind of person do you want to marry? Where do you want to go to college? What do you want to study? Those are a just a few prompts to get you thinking.
God never said it would be easy, but He did say He would never leave your side. Keep moving on – baby steps are fine. Just don’t give up!
