My name is Sutter Keeley and I'm 18 years old. Compared to other kids I haven't had that many hardships, not really. Shits happened. Stuffs has happened sure but stuff always happened, right? But the real challenge in my life, the real hardship is me. Its always been me. As long as I can remember I've never not been afraid. Afraid of faliure, of letting people down. Hurting people, getting hurt. I thought that if I kept my guard up and focused on other things, other people. If I couldn't even feel it. Than then no harm would come to me. I screwed up. Not only did I shut out the pain, I shut out everything. The good and the bad until there was nothing. Its fine to just live in the now but the best part about now is that there's another one tomorrow. And I'm going to start making them count. Sincerely Sutter Keeley.
P.s. I don't know if this was due along time ago, prpbably was. That's fine, its maybe too late for this essay. But it's not too late for me.
