My name is Kyo, and I was previously a child of CPS of NJ and homeless for 7 years. Ask me anything

Hello, good morning! Per a suggestion by several kind redditors, I wanted to give a bit of my story here and to answer questions for the sake of sharing and possibly encouraging others who have lived in similar straights.
I am currently 30 years of age, and I was previously homeless for 7 years (19-26) between jobs, couch surfing, homeless shelters and the like. Prior to that, I was the textbook example of one of those children who ended up travelling about my state, lost in the system and this weird wheel we call life. As of now, I can say that that while I still have my struggles, emotional remnants leftover from what I'd experienced growing up, I am doing far better than I have in the entirety of my time being here, and while still difficult at moments, I still do my best. Please, ask me anything!
