Quoting Rumpelstiltskin:" So you would have gone to school and had a more stable life with your choice... I would have thrown stability the wind! haha I wonder what my "carefree" life would have been like."
Ya know, I probably would have been stable so that I could do that later on. I watched my dad be stable and do whatever he wanted, and my mom goes with the flow. She struggles and he doesn't.
If I had made the choice to not own the guilt my dad put on me, yes I would be somewhere completely different. Instead, I let it get to me, started cutting, dropped out of school, went to cosmetology school, became an addict, went to rehab, met SO and had my kid. Now I'm trying to play catchup at 23 to get my degree while we live with my mom. Not what I intended. I'd love to have the other life, with this kid.
