    the one that didn't worry about what people

    said. the one that believed that anything was possible. the one that set out to prove others wrong. the one that didn't question why things happen the way they do.

    I went through a mentally

    and emotionally abusive and controlling relationship for a year and a half and finally got out of it and it opened my eyes to the world, how it works, and my place in it. I guess I miss the carefree, Innocent, trusting person I was before it.
