“You think can just entirely get rid of something about yourself?” I recently heard a someone say, “No. Whoever told you that is a liar!” “Well no,” I’d replied, “I just keep thinking that if I work hard enough it will like… go into remission or something.” Ha.

It’s how I’ve been able to see the other side of the struggle, and love them.
What if the thing, the really great thing that I do, the thing that that girl saw in me? What if it’s just, BEING ME?
I want to talk to you about this time I felt stuck. Really stuck. Really down. Really not myself. Depressed. I would actually classify this thing that happened, that I’m coming out of, as depressed.
