Journal Entry

No matter if it’s two months or twenty, we are all leaving soon. As I said before, my biggest fear is failure, which is kind of irrational. As humans, we will fail at times, it’s how we press forward. Today, I thought about how I feel like I should be “fixed” before hit the outside world. During my incarceration, I’ve learned the most lessons and grown immensely. There are plenty of lessons I still need to learn, but I’m still coming to terms with the fact it’s going to be outside the fence with more temptation, stress, and anxiety. The light at the end of the tunnel is waiting, it’s all in persistence and choices.
