Struggles are lessons that bring blessings to people that make them stronger, and able
to appreciate life more. When people go through struggles it makes them emotionally stronger.
In fact, throughout high school, my mom was an alcoholic and was never home. We constantly
argued about everything all the time. Experiencing this for years , I got fed up with it; which led
me to experimenting with drugs , started skipping school, and started hanging out with the
wrong group of people. The addiction that I was facing got so bad I started doing it at school
and got caught, suspended and eventually got sent to rehab. The experience I went through
made me a lot smarter about the choices I make. My mom got help with her addiction and our
relationship grew stronger. I, an almost drop out student decided to go back to school and got
my work done. Graduated on time and now I 'm a sophomore in college with a healthy
relationship with my wonderful , sober mother who also has been sober herself for 2 years.
Battling this stress caused by my addiction was a drag on my happiness, which made me want
to give up on everything. Rewarding part of this struggle made me the person I am today,
happy. This obstacle taught a lesson to not do the things that caused harm to myself or others
around me and also brought a blessing, my mom and I are closer than ever.
