Moving beyond ego

It was the first time I’d felt so far outside of my comfort zone. I was living in a foreign country, and had just completed my studies for the term. My job and place to live for the summer had fallen through. I had very little money remaining and a return plane ticket for three months away, and needed to work to be able to afford tuition for the next semester of university in the fall. Most urgently, I had no place to stay that night. 

All my efforts to find a solution had failed. My parents couldn’t support me financially. For as long as I could remember, I’d been working multiple jobs each summer to make ends meet. I didn’t know who I was without work and a way to earn money.
