Four years ago today I moved to Delaware for the first time tostart a job as a bird biologist. Before that I was unemployed for a few years, living with my parents, and generally without a purpose in life. I wanted to work but I had a lot of anxiety and depression that kept me from taking the steps I needed. The job gave me purpose and showed me that I was able to survive away from my family. Four years later I’m in a much better place in my life. I have a better social life and I’m much more comfortable with myself. I know there are many others in the world today who are in the same place that I was four years ago. My advice is to take every opportunity that you can to take small steps in the right direction and before you know it everything will be changing for the better. The photos are me four years ago versus me today.
