I was raised without a father and molested at the ages of 5 and 8. I internalized these things, along with other abuse, and pushed them to the side, desperately not trying to feel my emotions any longer. I didn’t relate to others, and I didn’t truly know myself. I got into weed at 15, and then it was just a downward spiral until it was meth and percs by 21. I’m 24 now, I want people to understand there is a brighter future out there. The peace and happiness I feel now, I didn’t get until I had a therapeutic breakthrough at 23, and since then it’s like my whole worldview was changed and I feel free again, I feel like me, despite not ever knowing what that felt like. Keep your head up, if you stay positive, and maintain a belief you’ll figure out how to fix yourself, you can fix yourself.
