being grateful when it is hard

The day I moved into my new apartment was a little stressful. I drove to the new place with a U-Haul full of my life, excited about this cute yellow door that God opened for me.

I saw a victory

Trigger Warning: Suicidal Ideation In August of 2019, I wanted to die. I just couldn’t go on anymore. I locked myself in the bathroom and stared at myself in the mirror.

Like most of my posts, I’m admitting a lot of things. This is actually one of the hardest posts I've written in a while because I'm purging some deeply internalized things.
