This is a group where we come together and discuss our thoughts and feelings.

We will engage is a whole new [journey]-well, I’ll use the word migration, migration because when on a journey, you return to where you started and by migrating, you leave from where you were and begin with a new beginning.  This new beginning may  seem weird or strange to you.  You will have thoughts like, “man, this is not me” or “my dudes will think I have become soft”.  Even the negative energy that promote these kinds of thoughts will be more intensified.  Why?  Because, the negative energy does not agree with the positive energy that you have tapped into now.

However, each individual must by all means be totally honest with themselves.  We know the whole truth about ourselves.  We must not wear that mask any longer.  The mask that we hide behind. The one that puts up that front in public.

It’s been too long now, WE-as X Offenders- have been chasing a dream that will just not happen because we have been going about it the wrong way.  No wonder we always end up at the same spot, because we keep trying to reach new goals and dreams with the same old way of thinking.

WE must change our way of thinking.  Thinking Controls Behavior, so if our thinking controls our behavior, then we must change our thinking, first!  This is the beginning of change! If you have joined this group, then you have taken the first step to a New Way of Thinking.

You should begin to keep a journal on your thoughts and feelings.  You must be true to this new way of thinking or change will not occur and become defeated as in the past.  If your mind can conceive it, and your heart can believe it, then YOU can achieve IT!

I am a 54 year old male who has spent twenty years of his life in prison and I have now gone on to obtain a Bachelor of Social Work degree (BSW) and my Master of Science in Psychology degree (MSP) I have dedicated my life to helping others to gain a better insight on how to better respond to the vicissitudes of life. I have changed my life by giving my life to Christ. There is no other way I want to live the rest of my life, and that is assisting with opening the eyes of other ex-offenders, while sharing the Wisdom, Knowledge, and Understanding of what it really means to live Free and Well after a life of being in prison.

    The Man and The Mask poem is awesome. We as people wear a mask whether we are inside a prison or out in the community. I commend you for sharing your life experiences publicly.
