It’s 2019, and my life has turned for the better.
The heaviest personal burden I have ever had in my life thus far has been taken off my shoulders. I came clean to my family, and they accepted me, took care of me, and loved me. It took the most courage from me, but it was worth it. I couldn’t stay in that hole anymore.
In the middle of the year, I finally went to see a psychiatrist. I was diagnosed with major depressive disorder and have been taking medication for it ever since.
Earlier than that, I found the four-letter word in a four-letter name. She’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me. She saved me from myself. She is the light of my life.
I’m finally properly back to university! I still am not quite sure with the direction I’m going, but I’m approaching things slowly and surely.
I am slowly accepting myself, that I am not perfect and will never be. I am allowing myself to commit mistakes and learn from them. I am learning how to not take things too seriously, to laugh at myself and my misfortunes. It’s just life.
