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.

  1. In April, I had torn a tendon in my knee I was bed bound. I had just started my own business but couldn’t contribute to it at all. I lost a lot of opportunities and money. The healing process took about 8 weeks and even then I had to be careful to not strain it. That was my lowest point. I felt completely helpless.
    My highest point would be the month of December I achieved multiple goals. It seemed like I got a break. My blog was gaining more traction, I got a new job and the holidays were amazing.

    Great piece to encourage reflection!

    1. Thanks for the response TSP. I’m sorry for the injury and am glad you have been able to heal. Good luck to you in 2016 friend and thank you for the support.
