Life experiences transform you dramatically into a different human being. It certainly has transformed me.
When I was younger I used to have not much confidence as result of bullying and had a lot of people who put on a show pretending to be my friends who stabbed me in the back.
Now I would say I’m more confident, calm and the happiest I’ve ever been. You know the saying “It’s all about quality, not quantity.”
This is the principle I believe when it comes to friends. My friends are brilliant and I trust them. They are from all walks of life such as college, academy, churches and football.
Recently I was speaking to a good friend about this topic and each other’s problems that we have managed to overcome to be where are.
This conversation was interesting and emotional. As looking back a bit at the past has made me think that I never wish anyone to experience that even my biggest enemy.
What I have been up to
I travelled by train to watch Blackburn Rovers against Ipswich Town on Saturday which ended in a lacklustre goalless draw. The sunshine was out in Lancashire which was the only positive thing that happened that afternoon.
Soon I’m heading up to Macduff to see friends and family which I’m really looking forward to.
Hope you all enjoy the October holidays and thanks for following my journey in becoming a journalist.
