22: Life After Leaving

I gave up everything to help my family- my savings, a 2,000 mile move away from home, my final year of drama school, and a film dream that seemed so close to being real. This past year has been pretty shitty for me, but I think I'm beginning to realize the beauty of how life moves on. I don't know when I'll be able to start again, but my dream is still there, as it has been for the past 20 years. I now know that my time in limbo has done nothing but help me see this world in a more beautiful and unfiltered way. And I now know that that's the reason I gave everything up... because following a dream without seeing what it's really worth to you, is worth nothing at all.
