Looking back, forward and at the present: I have come a long way just in the past year alone. Its amazing the effects some have in you and you are too blind to see it. I have found out who my friends are, found out who I have outgrown. I love all of you for making me laugh, for laughing at me and for bringing out the worst of me in the best way, through my humor. You have all is sone way held my hand when I needed it most. You have cheered me on and set me straight when I needed it. Many of you have seen me really grow over the last year and half.. It may have taken a big fall, but I am back on my feet again because of wonderful friends, family and a great boyfriend.
I look forward to a future, something I wasn’t doing before. I know Im not perfect and no longer feel I have to be, and I am okay with that. I know I will have my slip ups and setbacks with depression and such, but now have all the right people in my life. You guys have helped me stay alive, come alive and be alive and human.
So everyone please know, situations are only temporary. Before you feel defeated, remember, you control what you can change, who stays and goes, and how strong you stand. Don’t let anyone ever take that from your soul, its beautiful and so are you. Reach out, someone is always there to listen. If you are embarrassed or ashamed for your feelings, find a therapist, a priest, a friend, anyone you wish. You are not alone nor the first or last to go through what you are going through.
