The contour of one’s personal life is characterized by wane and successes. Yet. there is no thing in life that precedes every end. aspiration. and vision of day-to-day being except that which inquiries infinity and the construct of God. During my childhood. I pondered on the basic inquiry that every kid asks to their parents: where is God resting. Parents normally tell their kids that God lives up in Eden. that He is a sweet-loving and caring God. Then all of a sudden. the adversity of life come in. The world of unemployment. offense. racial hate. and of class parental divorce. becomes manifested in a person’s life.
For me. such events did occur during my adolescent yearss. I saw several of my equals selling drugs in the school. Some of my “white” schoolmates directed racial slur against pupils of “color. ” Although I by and large ignored these incidents. I felt guilty of being an confederate to the offense ; that is. the offense of skip. I questioned whether there was a God who will halt all these non-sense and set up His land here on Earth as a Christian progressive would ever set it. Then. my parents divorced ; all my familiarities in life shortly crumbled.
I found myself lost in a nothingness ; the world itself bounded heartlessly to my psyche. But I have to confront world. I have to accept the fact that my parents are divorced. The lone avenue of credence was to turn out to myself that I am capable of being independent. Independence precedes the atrocious truths of one’s being. By chew overing on labour and doggedness. jobs would by themselves dissolve into convenience. I started to seek new things in life ; things that would elate my accomplishments as a individual. Thus. all things that I planned to make were subscribed by independency. Hence. I became an independent individual: a better individual.
