My Ridiculous Dream

I don't remember the last time I laughed; I only remember the sad and embarrassing moments. I don’t feel good among my friends; just lonely and sad.

So, I’ll introduce myself. My name is Alan and I’m a 17-year-old from Morocco. I am different from others because I hate my country lifestyle; no one understand me.

I don’t feel like a normal person anymore. I don’t remember the last time I laughed; I only remember the sad and embarrassing moments. I don’t feel good among my friends; just lonely and sad.

I have thought many times about suicide.

Dreaming of a Home

I’m sure most people have heard a lot of nice things about my country of Morocco, but life here is difficult.

In my dream, I hope to find healthy, sober people that I can call “best friends.”

Drugs are everywhere around me. I am sad and I don’t deserve this, but my life getting worse every day. Even so, I will not give up because I don’t want to stay like this.

I have a dream for the future – a dream that includes exploring the world until I find a place I can call home for the first time. In my dream, I hope to find healthy, sober people that I can call “best friends.”

Words of Wisdom

If you have the same problem – the same pain – please don’t ever give up. It will only cause more pain.
