Thank goodness it's not last year


Last year I was in an abusive relationship, I was at my dream university but flunking, I had completely stopped talking to my parents (granted, they're not teddy bears but I need to keep people on my side by my side), I had stopped eating and I essentially pretended I didn't exist for months on end.
Now, I'm back with the person I love. I got my grades up and got offered a spot at my dream semester abroad program. I'm at my parents' place now trying to make amends with the past. I gained 8 lbs and I try to be mindful of my own existence.
It's still **** sometimes and I absolutely have to continue working in order to keep my head above the water. But when I think back to what I had last year vs what I have now, it's like I crawled out of hell. It's like taking a breath of fresh air. It's like standing on the deck of a boat and looking at the horizon. It's awesome.

@DeeAyJay Hey its great to hear that your trying your best to improve your situation and that your seeing results, there's always going to be those hardships along the way in life but you can persevere and enjoy the good moments when you can. There's a quote I once heard that goes something like "Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise".
