When Justin was little he didn’t get to see his biological mother a lot, but one day she called him and said “I’m gonna come over in a couple days around 5 to see you”. Justin was so excited he was able to hang out with his little brother. When the day came, Justin was so ecstatic and as the day progressed he could not wait any longer. When the time came for his mother to arrive, he was so happy and couldn’t wait for her to get there, but as the time passed by, he ended up falling asleep. When he woke up the next morning, he realized that she never came. All sorts of emotions flowed over him and he started to cry, but the one emotion that he felt the most was disappointment. This feeling is worst feeling a you can have as a child and in that moment, I began to cry uncontrollably. But time went on as it always does, during which I continued to not see my mother. I got used to not having her around. Although this was a difficult time in my life, I consider it also to be a learning experience. It took some time, but I learned that not all adults disappoint you, and that you can trust people to be there for you. This is proof that time can in fact heal.
