A little seed fell from a tree and the winds caught it. It landed in the worst of places, in the crevice of a large rock. Not much soil to bite into and the heat of day, its growth was stunted. It felt far from its mother who could cast her leaves for food and provide shade to root. In short time the seedling looked around to see other trees were growing faster... being in rich soils and and water spots they soon began to cast their own seeds. She looked at hear terrible condition and she could hear them, so she thought, make fun of her position and lack of life and it crushed her spirits.
One day a great storm came and with it was lightning and winds! The tallest and grandest of trees was the one hit first and caught afire! Winds blew and the big trees were damaged, one by one they toppled. The little tree being low to the ground and in that firm rock was safe from the lightning and the high winds and it dodged the fire. It is then she looked down on the terrible ground she was in and gained appreciation for what she had. It wasn't what she wanted, but it was in fact better than what everyone else had!
This tree struggled through the winds and burrowing its roots through that rock crevice to find what little water it could. Through the struggle, she persevered. The perseverance created character and character lead to hope! She grew more slowly than others, she saw other trees come and go over time, but this tree grew sure enough as opportunity would come at times, bringing rains and nutrients to grow by. The winds although hard, made her branches stronger. She lacked water the the other trees had, but when the dry season came, she was TOUGHER than all the others and persevered while other trees would wither and fall. The hard times gave her strength as she'd learn things others would not know.

You're still living at home, so get a job and start saving money to move out. If you are in debt, use this opportunity to get out of debt. You're 24, you're life isn't over. You can change things, you just choose not to. You can try to use depression as an excuse, but you can get help with that. I've been depressed. Most of my late teens and early 20's I was depressed. I also have social anxiety, so I really don't have a social life either. Now I have a very good job, I make good money, I have a good savings and I am working on buying a place. Life is what you make of it. You can either choose to stay in the rut you're in, or you can work hard to get out of it.0
