Every now and then, I force myself to take a step back. I take a step back and express my gratitude for everything I have.
I’m not rich by any means, I don’t live a very luxurious life. I’m a simple girl, who has had to deal with her fair share of headaches in my life. But – I’m here. I’m fighting the constant battle that is depression (throw in my severe anxiety and it’s a double whammy).
A couple of years ago I was at my lowest of lows. I had given up and felt as though there was no point in even trying anymore.
I attempted to take my own life.
But somehow – I made it through. So while it all could have come to a crashing halt that day, it didn’t.
Though it’s taken me a long time to get here, I am finally, genuinely happy that it did not.
I am surrounded by love and laughter every day, and for that – I am grateful.
