I lied to and stole from the ones I love the most. I sold my mind, body and soul to obtain this drug, but now I am no longer an addict. Having (I am a) recovered, I will be a survivor." Sitting there with (across from) my mother, I was just staring and trying to perceive (intake) everything my mother was reading from the letter she wrote after she returned home from an rehabilitation center. An inspiration is so hard to find but with a mother like mine, inspiration abounds (enough). When I first found out that my mother was addicted to drugs I could not think (didn’t know) what to do. It seemed as if instead of trying to help myself, I placed my problems on others and thereby always depended on them to fix every thing. I felt like a lost child roaming around the earth. The day my mother had to leave, she came to me and said "I’m not strong right now, so I need you to be strong for me. I need to go away for a while, so listen, no more depend (ing) on others (anybody else). Be your own person/just be yourself; show the world you are ready to be independent." I just sat there looking into my moms’ teary-eyed face. I really didn’t know what to say. Soon after she left, I resolved to get strong for my family, but most necessarily (of all I got strong) for my mother. Helping with anything and everything I could, eventually I felt mentally and emotionally, weak as if (like) I was losing this battle of (to) staying strong. Then I thought of my mother and realized that we (mean d my family) are not the only ones struggling to stay strong, she was also. To this day I use my mothers motivation to overcome her weakness to help me strive for success. Her strength has inspired to have the desire to devote my time, effort and compassion to anything I do. I can now realize that even when all odds are against me, I can still stay strong, succeed and be independent (at everything I do). I am an independent Afro - American woman with a voice to be heard. Even though my mother’s absense (leaving) was a terrible situation it turned out to have (be a) beneficial effects (situation) also. She wanted me to become an independent person and she had so much faith in me. With her departure (gone made me) I realize how much independence she had to stand on her own and overcome her addiction. That alone gave me the courage and enormous strength to (take an) step into the real world and stand on my own. Her independence inspired me to take full responsibilities for all my problems and actions, with a view to step up and establish goals. My mother gave me the inspiration to have not only a strong voice but also to know when and how to use it. She used to say, "I know I have been away (gone) for a while but I am your mother. So you need to learn how to talk to me no matter what maybe the circumstances." The best (thing) and first thing my mother taught me after/when she came home was how to communicate. With the independence in her absence I recalled (learned while she was gone made it) how hard it was for for us to have a discussion when we would come to a disagreement. I realized that she was the one who taught me all I know about independence. So I recollected (took) those skills and applied them every time we would come to disagreement. (and) Consequently, now I am a much (an even) stronger person with an influential voice. My mother has inspired me to enhance (take) my communications abilities as we move farther into the communication age (farther into the world). I have had plenty of ups and downs in my life, but the lessons I have learned from my mother's struggles have helped me through. I had one bad year academically in junior high that set me behind in course credits. In the past five years since then, I have had to work harder than many of my classmates to catch up and make up the credits missed by me so that I could graduate on time. This was possible due to (It has taken) the strength and independence that I learned from my mother, as well as emotional maturity and relentless work ethic. I have had five years to practice these skills, and now these are second nature. I know I will be successful at College because i have acquired the necessary skills to do so.
