So, as most of you know today was my 19th birthday, I honestly never thought I’d be alive to see this day come. There were so many days when I didn’t want to wake up the next morning because I didn’t think I could face another day, but somehow I found the strength to carry on and continue to live even if the only thing I could accomplish was opening my eyes and continuing to breath. My life hasn’t been easy by any means, I’ve struggled with self-harm, depression, anxiety, abuse, and eating disorders. I’ve hated myself and I’ve relapsed. But, I also found hope and I found help. I’ve met amazing people that have helped me through so much and have made it possible that I was alive to celebrate today. I can’t thank them enough for their support, love, time, words, and efforts. You guys are amazing and wonderful people who I love dearly and I owe my life to. Thank you, thank you, thank you. krispy-bits themastervainglorious disneyprincess-kaitlin themadmancomplex ash1309 and anyone else who has been there for me when I needed advice, hope, encouragement, or a shoulder to cry on. I wouldn’t be in this place without you.
