Hey I'm posting this awkward selfie from the bath to remind everyone not to give up... ~~ StOrY tImE~~ guess what, 3 years ago at this time, I was in rehab, 2 years ago this week I was trying to quit suboxone and overdosed waiting to get into detox.. The 7 years before that I spent with no fixed address, with nowhere to call my very own, no direction, just wandering trying to find my home, trying to find peace within myself (and drowning my lack of peace in whatever substance I could).
Here I am now- about to graduate college on the Dean's list every semester so far, about to have a baby, with a place I call my own with the person I love the most, planning to transfer to UBCO and get a university degree. Let me tell you, I NEVER saw this coming.
I just want to remind anyone that's struggling, anyone that thinks they suck ass at life, anyone that thinks they're so low there's no way to climb up, anyone that thinks theres no point- listen, as far as we know this is our only conscious chance at this round of life- why waste it? Why not make the best of it? Why not try to do some good, for yourself and the planet? Why not try to enjoy this time instead of sleep walking in a fog of despair? You can recover, you can find hope, you can find something to live for- because if I could do it, you better believe you can too
