I realized recently that I have been too busy to make a normal post or anything related to thanksgiving that was a few days for those of us in the United States.
I suppose it is better to say something now then never. Since we should always be thankful for those around us, let’s get started.
Happy (Belated) Thanksgiving
I have been going through a transition in my life and I haven’t been handling it the best I could have. I started college, am losing my best friend of 5 years and partner of 2.5 years.
Even though a lot of things have gone wrong, I have a lot that I am still thankful for.
- My new friends in band with me that have accepted me from day one and immediately offered to help when they learned of issues I was having. I thank those people from the bottom of my heart, they have been there for me without question and done whatever they could without me asking (and sometimes wanting to avoid).
- My family that, even though they can’t be around me everyday, have offered to talk to me if I ever need it. It took until I was farther away, though not much, for me to realize that I needed to show what they mean, but that is difficult for me.
- Even though this person has caused me a whole spread of pain, they are still the one person I would trust with everything. Even after the breakup and our awkward situation, they listened when I vented even though I should have left them alone. If this is the last I ever talk to this person after this semester, I hope they understand I wish I could properly apologize for everything I’ve done that caused us to not work. You are my first, and I wish, my last that hopefully can learn to grow close again one day.
This coming Monday, I will begin my weekly posts from the Daily Page. It is going to be responses to their prompts. They have daily prompts, but I will pick one the Friday before that I liked the best from the previous week.
If anyone sees a prompt that they would like me to respond to, link it to me via a comment on this post or a future response and I will look into it.
Thank you all for the support. This is an outlet and venting space for me that I hope to pay more attention to with my extra time I have now and throughout Christmas break when it begins.
