Prompt – Looking back on 2015, talk about some of the highs and some of the lows
My lowest point this year was in October. I had just gotten out of a relationship and was doing the unhealthy habit of clinging to that person even though it would only cause more pain at the end of the day.
I started cutting again temporarily and even though it wasn’t enough to physically cause damage, it terrified me. I had lost the one thing I thought I was able to overcome when I was younger, but it made me remember that addictions and habits don’t just disappear. We have to work towards avoiding it every day of our lives.
Getting out of that difficult situation was quicker then it would’ve been due to a great person who I started talking to in November and recently started dating. I can never repay them, and everyone else whose helped, for being there when I felt like I didn’t deserve it.
My highest point was the 2 weeks of December 6th-December 22nd. It was spent with the person that has become my new partner. It started off because he told me he liked me and somehow wound up spending a lot of time together.
After that much needed support and happiness, we both decided that we were basically together, but hadn’t wanted to admit it right away.
Life sometimes does what you least expects and sends people to you that you never thought would mean anything to you. Those are the people that we all have to watch out for in our lives.
