“Is there a particular memory that represents childhood for you?”
“Probably laying in bed when my parents had parties, listening to my parents’ friend play guitar downstairs, and eavesdropping on all the adults with their cocktails.”
“How do you view those adults differently now that you’ve become one?”
“I realize all the shit they were dealing with.”
Even if I don’t believe it now, I just need to keep reminding myself that everything is going to be okay, I will get through this. I will get better and I will overcome my self harm addiction and depression. I have family and friends who loves me and cats who I adore. And possibly a niece or nephew soon enough.
I need to be positive. Summers almost here, school is almost done, I’m graduating and I should be proud of myself for it. I’m starting a new chapter in my life and even though my 90% of my schooling life was shit, it doesn’t mean that the rest of my life will be. Everything’s going to be okay.
