the sun will shine again
I have good days. I have great days. I have bad days and worse days. I am so thankful for the bad because they teach me to be grateful for the good.
One of my reasons for making this blog was to be honest with everyone in my life as well as myself. I would be lying if I said that I was always so positive and happy and as cheerful as I might seem. Aren’t we all though? I was hanging out with an old friend the other night and our conversation allowed me to really reflect on how far I have come. This was a friend who saw me on some of my worst days and was close to me through some of the hardest obstacles I faced. He was always supportive and real with me. He knew that I needed help long before I admitted it. That was part of our conversation was that I was telling him how I was working on being honest with myself. Depression and anxiety are a part of who I am. Why is that so scary and hard to say? I don’t know but I do know that it is the truth, and I am so thankful I was able to reach a point in my life where I was able to admit that and seek the help I needed.
After graduation I looked back on my last three and a half years and realized that this was a moment I never saw happening. That sounds awful I know. But for whatever reason I never thought I would make it this far. Life truly is a day by day thing and if we spend our time stuck in the past or rushing to the future we miss everything right before us. Just remember that you are always strong enough to make it through whatever it is you are going through. Be proud of yourself. Love who you are becoming and respect yourself.
