It’s taken a long time to get where I am now.
A year ago, I was starving myself, crying every night, sending the boyfriend who just broke up with me an email a night, hating myself for how he made me feel.
I went from having the most perfect relationship, to having nothing.
My parents hated me and who I’d become.
I had few friends that I could confide in, and I thought all the hard work that I’d done over the years was completely worthless and that I was going nowhere.
There were times when I was driving, or going out with friends, that I should drive off the road and into a tree, or off an embankment; or I should drink myself to death.
Here and now, I sit, reflect on my life, and all that I have accomplished in the past few months, and I couldn’t be more proud of who I am.
My mistakes, all the adversity, made me a better person, and I am SO happy that I am here.
I am well on my way to where I want to be in my career… I have a beautiful body that I have worked so hard for (now in a healthy way), and I have FINALLY moved on from the ex who kept me up all night and made me feel like a horrible, ugly person.
I have found someone that I am absolutely smitten with, and have amazing friends that I can confide in, and love just like family.
It is possible to go from an unbearable “then” and move onto a beautiful “here” and “now”.
Life is beautiful, and there are so many things to be happy about.
It may seem that things are always greener on the other side; but trust me, on your side, you can always reseed, fertilize, and start anew.
