    I'm Actually Doing Alright

    I'm shocked and amazed at how making the breakup permanent and final has actually  helped me. I can move on as he always wanted me to do anyway. I don't expect anything at all from him because I told him I don't want to hear from him. I don't see his face on my page anymore and...

    It's taken so long, but I feel like it's

    finally happening. I just take life day by day as I keep searching for perspective and purpose. It's like yesterday I was trying to find happiness by acquiring the things I didn't have, and now, today, I'm finding it in the things I already have.

    I feel like I am getting better.

    the medications are starting to help. but then I have moments or a day that are just terrible, and I still feel helpless on those days. I'm glad things are starting to get better, I'm just nervous it's a fluke and I'm going to be back down again

    Thanks to my new meds

    and new therapist, I feel better than I have in a really long time! It feels so good to be normal, to an extent. Never thought I would get to this point and feel so comfortable here.

    as happy as I can. I am in the middle of getting better. I know it's a bit hard for me to do it, but it's better to try it rather than not doing anything. Since last week, I am always looking for 1 thing that makes me happy and worthy for every each day or I will try new...

    Today has been a good day.

    I have finally started to take myself back, and take my time back from a particular situation with a person in my life. I am getting stronger and standing on my own two feet, at least today. I have need to bow up my back and be strong.

    I've been feeling better about her leaving me.

    Not 100% but maybe 45%. I miss her a lot and she was a big part of my life. I'm leaving her alone as she has requested me to do so I shall. If she never thought I respected her then maybe by doing this it would show her that I do. Like I said not 100% but better than 0%.

    Bit by bit I can feel myself evolving

    as a person. Maybe, at this rate... Life won't end up being so bad after all. I can easily say that I'm a better person than I was last year, or the year before.

    I think I'm finally comfortable in my skin.

    I can look and the mirror and smile. I can put on makeup and clothes and feel confident. I can take selfies and not delete every single one. It's actually a really nice feeling. To not care what people think. And when someone gives me a compliment, I actually believe them. When...

    At least I think so. Maybe it's

    because I've been less triggered. I really don't know right now. As of now though, I think I'm okay. I'm just glad that I'm finally a legal adult, so now I don't have to worry about being forced to live anywhere.
