Hi my name is Ezekiel Almonte and I am 21 years old. I have been homeless for almost 1-2 months. I got kicked out of the shed I was in living because I “wasn't enough” to the person providing the space. THe agreement was in exchange for shed & shower, kitchen, internet sleeping bag etc, I had to take care of the yard work. I had to do what the landlord told me to do until there was nothing to do. Thankfully there was nothing sexual. At first the agreement was cool, everyday a couple of hours a day I cleaned and picked up poop, took out the trash, wash dishes and listen to the landlords stories and help him run errands. I ended up at this place in the beginning of my journey for the things I my eyes can't see. I was there for 2 ½ months I was there but it quickly turned into a “ do what I say or you will regret it” situation. I was being pushed in a direction I wasn't okay with and that's when I stood up for myself and left.
What is one important lesson learned while transitioning into adulthood?
I feel like I am still in that transition, I dont know if I will ever cross, dont know if I even want too. I am more concerned now about truly living a life of my own. Creating my circumstances, my own problems, rather than piggy backing off everyone else. A lot of adults have told me I am about giving but not if it does not promote growth within the environment. Progression and elevation are the most important to me.
What are your goals for your adulthood?
Well in 10 years I aim to create a lifestyle that promotes solitude in the space forward manifest thinking. Eating healthy, maintaining/building generational wealth ( mind/body/spirit). And lastly exercising unconditional love and breaking my unconscious habits.
What is one thing you would like SEED HOUSE PROJECT assistance in?
I really just need a place to progress in the opportunity at hand.
