I am just an extension of myself 2 years ago.
Everything I am now, is based on what I did back then.
I made huge mistakes, wrong turns, blunders, whatever you may call it.
I used to mourn over them.
But now, looking back, I felt every huge mistake brought a huge lesson.
Had I chosen to drift away and pursue a different path at some point, I might or might not be happier.
Nevertheless, I am an extension of my 10th grader self, and I’m glad I did what I did.
