Slow down.

I am 21 years old and a senior in college. I live off campus with my boyfriend and dog, Bella. Many people that are my age or have graduated with me, majority, are married, engaged, and/or have children. Often times I think: “What am I doing wrong?” But now I see its not what I am doing wrong, but that I am simply walking on MY own path. 

Coming from a teenage mother, she had me at 14, is not something that is easy to understand. Yes, that means that my mother is 36. She finished high school on time and has been to college three times since she has finished. She is a huge role model in my life. But what hurts worst is the fact that people ask her “When does Carmon finish school?” “Any grandchildren yet?” Like darn are y’all waiting for me to just fail? All of the people that I know it makes me question if they are secretly waiting for me to fail….. Yeah that is crazy, but it no longer hurts.

I am 21 years old and a senior in college. I live off campus with my boyfriend and dog, Bella. I am in a relationship of almost 4 years. He just finished college this past weekend and I am due to graduate Dec. 2018. So, why am I rushing to be like others? This life is working for me and I am extremely happy.
