I can’t stress enough how important it is that you surround yourself with supportive people who make you feel important and special, and who enhance your life with their presence. If their presence is making you feel worse instead of better, re-evaluate why you’re letting them stay.
the ache is slowly fading, good vibes are beginning to emerge this semester.
could the worst have happened already? i was incredibly anxious the plane ride here, excited, and incredibly terrified, hoping no repeats, no emotional roller coasters, i did not want to go back into that awful hole that i dug for myself and made a home of. i tortured myself so much last semester - the state of my mental health was slowly decaying
i told myself when i landed here a few weeks ago, it could only get better from here
discovering that things can get better

take your time.
