Life goes on for me as I continue my quest to blend back into society, a society that I have never fit in, in a sense, as I spent most of my life in places designed for those who refuse to conform.
These days I live my life much different than I ever imagined and am more tolerant, more patient, and more compassionate than I was during my youth; otherwise, I wouldn't be sitting in front of a computer working on a blog to post. I'd be dead or back in prison.
My opinion is that anyone who spent decades of life inside most prison systems, struggle to fit back into society, whether in America or abroad. That belief has support in overwhelming recidivism numbers (over 80% return to prison within a few years of release). Once a person adapts to prison life, no true deterrent exists to make them stay out because the fear of going to prison is gone; living inside prison life may be easier for some than others. For me, I walked out the doors with the respect of my peers and would walk back in with the same level of respect because of being viewed as an OG (Old Gangster). But ....
Today, I prefer to be on the outside doing what I can to make a difference. Even though things don't go according to my plans and I am living under conditions I would prefer to be different, I am okay and will continue my quest of trying to fit back into society.
Regardless of how I feel about what goes in society, right or wrong, I am not in control and can only be responsible for my actions. My plan is to become a successful affiliate marketer.
Earning a few extra crumbs will be nice once I get things going. One of the products I promote is vitamins and supplements for the Life Extension Foundation.
Check the following links to see some of the businesses I provide content for to help along those lines (successful affiliate marketing). Thank you!
