After unpacking some of my shit, it was time to forge a new path.
(I am not done unpacking all my shit. Far from it.)
I need to start following my own path. For years I have been following someone else’s path, or the path that I thought was expected of me.
I am still trying to navigate my new path. It’s going to be rough some days, but I am really looking forward to moving ahead, instead of looking back.
I am learning many things about myself, and I am keeping an open mind when things don’t go the way I hoped they would.
I am continuing to embrace my mental illness (even on the bad days), and coming to terms with how it is a part of me, but yet doesn’t define me as a human.
I am slowly making changes in my life, and it feels good.
So if you see me feeling lost, or putting myself down, give me a poke and remind me: you are moving forward.
