Due to the fact that I am a 14 year old boy going into high school, every decision affects my social status. Regardless of how big or small a choice I make, “life changing” things can happen, based on what table I sit at, what food I eat, and who I choose to exchange polite banter with while I quietly eat my lunch. When I decided to immerse at Mayyim Hayyim, I had kept that decision to myself. My mother was most supportive of all when I made this decision. She had constantly helped to schedule a time to immerse. I decided to immerse because I was ready for a life change.
