Extract from Dave Pelzer's Book
I know school isn't always easy, or dealing with other kids, or things you have to face on a daily basis. No offense, but that's life. Everybody has problems. Everyone.
But you're different: you deal with things. It's not always easy, but that's the way it is. I'm not trying to be a tough guy about this, but no matter what happens to you, it doesn't give you an excuse to blame others or wallow in self-pity. Your mother, your teachers, others who love you, or even myself: we can only help you so far. It's going to be up to you to amke it happen. No one's perfect. There are no sets of perfect parents; no one has a perfect life. As you grow older, maybe you can learn something positive from mistakes.
You're going to be fine. You've got a strong heart. In life, you're going to make mistakes, you're going to fall down, but it's getting up that counts. Just like in baseball: you'll get a few hits, but most likely, you'll strike out more than you'll get on base. But don't quit. Find your focus, relax, take a deep breath, and give it a good swing. I beg of you, don't quit. There are so many people who cave in at the first sign of trouble. They quit school, they act like they know it all, and develop a habit of quitting on everything. You're better than that. If you quit, everything you fought for-your grades, baseball, your self-respect-would have been in vain.
The thing is, at the end of the day, you still have to face yourself. I know it's a lot to digest at your age, but i'm here to help you. There is nothing, and I mean *nothing*, you cannot accomplish if you want it bad enough. The choice is yours. Always has been, always will be. Stay on your course. be true to yourself, and you'll be fine.
