What I would love to do is become a well-published writer. I’ve always loved to write, especially poetry. It’s really helped me to get through some pretty rough times throughout my life and it’s the best way for an introvert like me to express my thoughts. Being able to write for a living would make me happy not so much for the money, but for the fact that I’d have a job doing what I love and I feel that I could help people through my writing, too.
I understand what it’s like to be depressed, to just feel as if there is no hope. There were times when I would stay in bed and sleep for hours even though I wasn’t particularly tired. So with that understanding of depression, I would use that to give people encouragement. That way they can have someone speak life to them who’s been where they are. I have a calling on my life and a real heart for those who are suffering. Even if I don’t necessarily know someone, just hearing them tell a sad story about what they are dealing with breaks my heart.
With my writing, I would tell them about how much God loves them and that no matter what they are struggling with, God is bigger. This world is full of brokenness and despair. Everyday people are in some kind of pain, looking for someone to save them. It is my deepest desire to help them find real joy.
