Before I turned 19 (I'm 21 now) ,I used to be a great kid. Got through high school, made good grades and parents were proud of me. Something at age 19 got in to me. I stole my step-dads credit card (it was extra one , laying in the cabinet and it was not supposed to be used because he had over $25K balance on it) and charged $4,000 in about 45 days, also got in to his bank account (he trusted me enough to do his bills... he makes $110,000 per year) and stole about $800. Not to mention I scammed about 6 people online totaling around $1000.
After getting caught, I was ready to bail but something kept me. My parents went through hell thou, they could not believe how someone so nice and honest could do such a horrible things. But I did not stop on that. I was already "hooked". I also sold about $600 worth of their gold. Today, I'm sitting in my room and I'm thinking did I really had a brain before?! I mean, I'm totally different person. I'm honest like never before , I live on my own and make decent money. I still owe my parents about $1200 which will be paid of by September of this year. I made a huge progress. I sometimes have nightmares about my past... what made me do these horrible things? Did anyone went through similar "situation"?
i thought there was going to be a bel-air at the end of the paragraph, but yeah i used to act up a bit when i was younger and steal some petty stuff, but now at 19 i am a pretty good, honest person. i dont steal or cheat off anybody, i think its a waste of time when i can prove i can do it myself
