In the first picture: This year I lost my Bestfriend, my furbaby, the woman I called my mother & go into a wreck that could have killed me. I have battled with depression and anxiety my whole life but that year was by far the hardest for me. My teachers, friends & family watched me as I approached a point in my life that looking back makes my chest hurt. That girl in that picture was trying to be so strong & she truly was. I’m glad I had people in my life that helped me see life was worth living & I didn’t have to feel so alone in my heart ache. Since this picture, so many things have happened to shape me into the woman I am today. I have scars inside & out but I’ve Survived.
Picture 2: I’ve learned it’s ok to feel broken & I’ll get through it much stronger than I was before. I’m currently still battling with my depression & anxiety but I have the most kick ass support group. A dad who once looked at me in mid panic attack and told me I was overreacting, He now calls me everyday to tell me how strong I am. A sister that thought I was crazy, now she demands to sit with me through my pain because she will be my anchor when I feel like Im losing my grip. A friend who understands that sometimes I can cry for weeks & then other times I can’t feel anything for months, she is the person that will drop everything to come to me when Im panicking & a hug from her makes my anxiety disappear. I know this post is long but I felt like I needed to put down in words I am thankful for the people I have in my life.
