I feel like this entire post will be almost a letter of gratitude to all the people that have recently entered my life and become a part of my support system/helped me view my life and the world around me with a fresh, new perspective. It’s impossible to pick just one since every individual is unique.
It still blows my mind how every person on this earth has a different set of experiences/beliefs/opinions/ways of expressing themselves that it’s impossible not to be emotionally touched by each and every one of them in a unique way.
Day 14: Someone who has made your life worth living.
Just thinking about this prompt makes me tear up, I think mainly because there were many points in my life where I did not want to continue living, every breath, every movement, every fleeting thought was just as painful as the next.
It took me a long time to open my heart, my eyes and become more accepting of myself and the life I’ve chosen to live. That’s not to say old feelings don’t return from time to time, because they do, and it becomes harder to live all over again, but there are people who have entered my life, touched my heart and given me the strength to keep going.
Part of me wants to keep going for their sake, to show them that their support, their love and kindness has had such a positive impact on me, yet other times, I want to use these positive emotions to propel myself upwards, for my own sake, because I know that somewhere, somehow, there’s a light at the end of my tunnel. One day I’ll find it.
