Change Starts in the Penitentiary

perspectives-from-prison-behind-bars

When you have become accustomed to doing things one way change can be extremely uncomfortable. But be mindful that the things we don’t enjoy are often best for us.

Often I here guys who have longer sentences question change. It often comes with the questions of why or what is the purpose. Then I usually ask this question: How would you like to be remembered? A drug dealer, gang banger, sex offender, murderer, car thief, bank robber, pimp?

The lifestyles we once lived do not have to define who we are as men. Even if your hope isn’t as strong as the man sitting next to you. One who has a longer sentence may feel hopeless while one on the verge of going home may be hopeful. The power is in the impact you can have on others. He may be struggling with the decision to fly straight, that bigger piece, wanting to return to them streets. Instead of validating the easier decision, going back to what he already knows, help him feel uncomfortable by offering him the advice needed to change. Show him there are bigger costs than benefits in his old lifestyle. You would be surprised at how much people want to change but remain stuck in the image.

As a man who has been doing time more than half of my life, one thing that I’ve always known is the impression I make is who and what people remember. And this was never good. We call ourselves leaders, lakini, as men, are we truly happy with the direction we are leading? The difference starts with us behind these walls. Change starts in the penitentiary.

I have witnessed many leave prison only to return within weeks. Instead of calling them stupid, I check the man in the mirror; and ask, what role did I play?

If you are not content, question your role. Once we change the way we view things, the things around us will change.
