I thought of this thread because of my own experiences, I won't talk too much about it but when I was growing up my parents were both unemployed and they had really bad addictions and habits. We spent a lot of time in and out of different accomodation. I always knew that wasn't the way things were supposed to be, I always knew in my head that's not how I wanted things to be for me. Unfortunately it's a cycle a lot of people get stuck in, and that could the case for my parents. I think I managed to break out of that cycle of unemployment and disadvantage by taking a different path, completley standing up to the people that told me I would be nothing because I had nothing. I have to fight really hard for what I've got and I still do but I've got a job, I fully support myself, I have things to be proud of like a new business. I feel like I'm leading a meaningful life despite being told that I'd just be trapped in the cycle my family raised me in. I have broken out of that cycle.
I'm interested to know if there has ever been a time you have gone against the "norm" or broken out of something? It could be with your friends, maybe you decided to show your true self which is completely different to your friends perceptions of you, or maybe it's similar to mine, either way I'd really like to hear people's experiences.
