Reflection, success, failure, love and loss.
You don't have to forgive everyone who hurts you, and you don't have to pretend that you have forgiven.
I was having a post-grad breakdown. I was having what others had described before me, but I never thought it was an actual thing.
Your recovery is wholly dependent on yourself, and no one can take away the pain you have whilst going through it.
There's a reason so many people appreciate honesty from each other- we're also trying to look for honesty in ourselves.
Some days, I've felt so high that I don't want to come down, but most times I have crashed to the floor so hard, and I've felt so much pain.
Social media is like a dice; most of the time you roll it and you win, but sometimes you lose.
I guess, if I had known about myself and the way I usually acted, I would have sat myself down and slapped myself. I would have known that I was acting shit, and that I had to bring myself back up.
Now, when pain arrives, I don't shut the door and it tramples it's way back in. I open the door, offer it a seat and let it stay.
I was up the stream, I had no paddle, I had no way to get back... yet, to me, I was doing pretty well. I was still floating, who cared if I would never reach land again?
