The New Year

A lot has happened in the past year. New beginnings and ends.

But, mostly, around this time of year I dwell on my failures. The things I did wrong, the things I didn’t get quite right. I need to learn to focus on the things that went right. The things that I am proud of. So, here goes:

I kept in touch with my best friend who lives across the country.

I broke off an unhealthy relationship.

I tried in school.

My dad is healthy and sober.

My mother is getting treatment.

I have been clean from cutting for the longest sense I started.

I am in a healthy relationship with an amazing guy who I love.

I have maintained great relationships with my college friends.

I feel as though I can be stable with both my mental and physical health.

I got a job.

I have a support system, both in CT and MO.

This year has been tough, and I would not want to relive it, but I have to remember all the good things that have happened and not dwell on the past. I can only go up from where I am, and I am willing to work hard to get there. This year I am not setting any goals, I will be happy is I make any progress, learn something new, or even just keep a steady outlook on life.

Don’t dwell on the negative, I know it’s hard, but you can do it!!!!
