Morphew. She was a great teacher and she taught me so many new things throughout that year but it was not the same without Mr. Lemons. I grew very close to Ms. Morphew in that short year and as I was ready to start out my senior year with her, she had breaking news. She got a job offer back at her hometown that she could not pass up. I was heartbroken again but I understood that she needed that job close to her home.
It was hard work but my dad loved plants and learned a few things working there. The conditions were terrible but he managed to get a visa and went home to visit his mom and worked the land there in order to feed his siblings. He always had a background in planting and agriculture. When he got a house in Boston he went straight to planting and taking care of his back yard. It was his escape and allowed him to plant his hot peppers in the tiny backyard that we had.
First, seeing my parents fight all the time impacted me negatively. In relationships I use to hold back all my feelings and then one day I would blow up and yell at my partner about it. This took a lot of time to work through and stop yelling when a conflict comes up. The other way my parents relationship affected me as a child the way I viewed a good or bad relationship. I did not really understand what a good relationship was for a long time.
I remember that house like I was in it yesterday. I went to Garfield Elementary School from kindergarten to 4th grade. During those years, my grandma, grandpa, and aunts had such a big impact on my life. They did so many things that I’ll never be able to repay them for. They are the ones, along with my mom, who still help me to this day.
Even the snide remarks and stares of strangers that I had tried to ignore became too much to bear. By my fifteenth birthday, I hated myself so much I wanted to leave this world. When I was hospitalized for my own safety, I finally received help. The counselors changed my life through therapy and group activities. They helped me realize that "normal" does not exist.
