I’ll Never Be Like Them: Choosing my own future despite my past by Kelly Cross
Writing my story has been challenging but rewarding at the same time. This is the first time I have ever written anything about my past, not even in a journal. I’ve only shared the stories in this book with a few close friends up until now.
After my story in the book ends, I’ve gone on to live a wonderful life. In my 20’s, I was single and had wonderful friends. I utilized this time to take some challenges and opportunities. Mom was still in the picture, but life outside of that was good. I’ve worked and managed businesses in several different industries doing different roles within them. Each one helped to grow my knowledge and confidence in myself and business. Once I hit my 30’s, life took another shift in focus. Working was no longer my main focus; I now have a family that needs me, loves me, and who I want to be with.
My life is so different and so much better than I ever thought possible. I’ve been with my husband, Paul, for 21 years now. We’ve grown together and built a family unlike any that I’ve ever experienced. We have two beautiful boys who are now 18 and 15; they’re intelligent, kind, and incredible people. I’ve been blessed to be here to see our boys grow, change, and experience all the possibilities open to them in their lives. About 10 years ago, I was able to find my aunt, my cousin, and his daughter. I hadn’t seen them in about 40 years, and we’ve built a relationship that means so much to my family and I.
Now, with the boys older, I’ve stepped back into a more active role. I am helping to build the companies that Paul and I have. I know my future holds more opportunities to explore and we’ll see where they may lead.
