New School, New Look

by Jenni
(Marietta, Georgia)

My parents decided to send me to boarding school this year, so I decided to completely change my look. I dyed, highlighted, and chemically straightened my hair all in less than 2 months. Not only did it hurt my hair, but it changed my look completely.

After I did that, I decided to buy all new clothes and accessories. I started acting preppy and began dating the guy I knew I shouldn't be dating. I changed everything about me. Before I knew it, I wasn't even a Christian anymore. I had become agnostic.
It wasn't long after I made that choice that everything fell apart on me. I thought my world had ended. So many rumors started and eventually my boyfriend broke up with me because of them.
I felt worthless. I sat in my bed crying, angry at myself. Thinking it would be easier just to end it all right then. But then I remembered a guy I had talked a little with earlier that month. He was a really good guy and a strong Christian. So I decided to email him. We began talking and I found myself telling him everything. Not only did he listen, but he could actually relate to each other. We really began to open up. He really stood their beside me the whole time. He didn't listen to what any of the other guys said about me, nor did he care.
After things began to clear up we started talking on a normal bases and he was really able to bring me back to God.

Though we aren't even speaking right now, Thank You Morgan for talking with me that night. You really made a difference whether you realize it or not.
