Re: Headed to prison
I see you have had a lot of advice and offers for Pen Pals. That is good! There are a lot of great people here on WAP that speak from their heart and that too is good!
This thread "is" a very good idea, of course.
I have been to jail and to prison. It has been a long time ago. You seem to have had a lot of interesting and helpful advice. You have to "do you". I believe it is different for each person, and yet, the same.
My suggestion, if you don't mind, is that you find something to believe in. A "Higher Power" so-to-speak. I believe in God and know that He will see you through whatever situation you are going through. You just have to have faith . If you truly ask forgiveness and you mean it from your heart, you are forgiven. Stay honest, share what you have been through in your life that has led you to where you are. Help someone else who may need to hear it. You never know who your words are helping.
I believe that God works through a person to help others.
I went through so very much and deserved to be where I was when I was in jail. Yet God saw reasons to save me from myself. I had hope that I would make it and my life would be better and different . I would still probably make mistakes but it would not be the same mistakes.
Your lives will change. Your experience inside the prison may be what changes your lives for the better! Trust and believe that God will see you through whatever it is you will face and know you will come out of it a better person, and stronger person and a more mature person.
I will pray for you both and I have high hopes and wishes for you and yours. I have faith that all will be as it should.
