I know how it feels to not have any direction in life. I also know what it takes to turn your life around. When I was 19 I knew I was missing something. I didn’t have a mission in life, no sense of purpose and I lacked discipline. I grew up playing a lot of video games and would enjoy coming home from school every day to smoke weed. I must have spent over $500 on weed, in just two months. I enjoyed playing soccer but my video game addiction was taking over. I got a greater sense of satisfaction hitting buttons on a video screen than kicking a soccer ball.
I felt I was accomplishing something, but really video games were a way to distract myself from taking responsibility for my life. My addictions were getting out of hand. My girlfriend was going crazy because I spent more time getting high and playing video games than giving her the attention she needed. I ended up breaking up with her.I began flunking college because I’d spend more time drinking alcohol and watching porn than doing any work. I became lazy and devoid of any sense of purpose in life. This went on for years and years and it wasn’t until second year of university when I needed to change things up.
