Prompt – What’s the toughest thing you’ve been through lately? How’d you get through it?
I’m a freshman in college who started off with a rough first semester due to my personal life getting in the way. Although there were a lot of reasons for this, the main one was the breakup I suffered back in September. I’m not going to go through the explanation of everything that happened in this one post because I’ve already done that, but I will explain how it impacted me, especially for the months of September, October, and November.
After the breakup, I still clung to my ex as if somehow things were going to work out in the end. We stayed intimate and this wound up destroying me. I still relied on this person as if they still cared when it was obvious that they did not seem to anymore. They had turned off their ability to care for me when I was incapable of doing the same.
I had noticed something was wrong near the beginning of September, but they wouldn’t tell me what was wrong and I had no idea it was my fault. I thought they were sick because they had been recently, but this was not the case.
During those months, I felt alone at first. I got through it due to the help of some of the closest friends I have. This mainly includes the band family that forms at this college during marching season. They will never know how grateful I am for their help in me moving on so I could find someone new to be there.
