Rebel to Redeemed: Teenage Rebellion
I am so thankful that my parents trained me in the way I should go.
However, around the time I graduated high school I began to rebel.
I thought I knew what was best. I was anxious to test my wings and freedom, but also afraid of this freedom.
I began to hang out with the wrong kind of friends and tried smoking and alcohol.
When I left for college, I thought all of that was behind me. However, the rebellion was just beginning.
I fell in love with the wrong person and had a very short lived marriage at a young age. Everyone tried to warn me, but I refused to listen to the wisdom of family and friends that wanted to help.
I was on a run-away train.
The times of rebuilding my life were not easy and I would make minimal progress only to regress later on.
The rebellion that started as a teenager lasted for years to come.
I always wondered “what might have been” if I’d made different choices.
What are some of your regrets?
