I thought I would take the time to thank some of the people that made this year as amazing as it was. First of all, all of my friends that I met at Rogers (you know who you are). You all inspire me daily and even though we don't all keep in touch constantly, I love you guys just the same. Stay strong, friends. Next, my family. They have been through it all with me and they are an amazing support system. In addition, my boyfriend Jake has been outstanding to me this year. His love and commitment to our relationship is incredible. I am forever thankful for his support. Finally, my friends have shown me tremendous support in my time of need and I can't thank them enough. There are so many people out there that would have just walked away from the situation when I needed them, but my friends stuck around. That means the world. Thank you to everyone that touched my life this year. You are all a blessing.
I never imagined that I would be where I am today. Even though I still struggle from time to time, there is a future and there is hope. I am happier, healthier, and stronger than ever. That is all I could have ever hoped for. This Christmas has been unlike any other because of the amazing place I am at in my mental health journey. I am so grateful that I am alive and healthy today. Life is good. Merry Christmas everyone!
