Thankful for the relationships I’ve had
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I am especially acknowledging my growth as a person mentally and spiritually.
I think, as people, we often conform to different feelings based on who we choose to surround ourselves with. This past year tested my ability to withstand awful behavior from my former friends and significant other.
Even though I knew those people treated me poorly, I still chose to withstand it, because I’ve always lived in fear of being alone. Because of this fear, I gave my ex many chances to disrespect me repeatedly. Only recently have I uncovered many lies and actions that he has made during our relationship.
Now that I have detached myself from that group of people, I took time to heal as a person, mentally.
I’m happy to say that I’m now surrounding myself with a profound group of empowering people, who inspire me to put my well-being as my first priority.
