Stephen is 46 and incarcerated in the US (TX).
As cliché as it sounds, there are so many things in life that we take for granted. Unfortunately, you never realize it until those things are taken away from us. It’s only at that moment that we start to fully appreciate what means the most to us. What can’t be taken away from us are the connections and bonds we make with other people. The fate of those relationships lies solely with you.
I came from a very underprivileged home that made it considerably hard to make good choices. All of the bad choices I made took me down a very lonely and dangerous path. I was pretty much institutionalized from the ages of 15 to 23. I managed to stay out for 10 years and have been incarcerated for 14+ years this time. I’ve lost both of my parents and grandparents during this time. I’ve missed a lot of important parts of my family’s lives. It’s been really hard for me in this place and I battle the disappointment every day.
I’m not looking for pity because I have no room for it in my heart. After losing my mom in November of last year, I learned that when God calls us home, it was part of the plan. The only thing we can do is keep moving forward. God’s gift of love is meant to be shared throughout our whole life. The loss of love of one person should be repurposed to someone else who may need it. Especially if they think they don’t need it. We are all God’s children and are meant to live in harmony with one another. The only friends I’ve ever had were mostly the undesirable kind. Without making excuses, they had a lot to do with why I’ve spent most of my life institutionalized. I don’t want those kinds of friends anymore. I am looking for good, honest people that have class and morals they hold dear to their heart. This is how I can help strengthen the support system already in place upon my release.
Thank you for your time and your friendship.
