And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light!Genesis 1:3
Cliche I know, but I genuinely feel like a different person than I was last year—and I don’t mean last year by today being the first day of 2019.
In the past six months I have been sort-of MIA in terms of social media presence and especially posting on this blog. I have been working on myself, and I have made progress by leaps and bounds compared to the first day of 2018.
Anxiety and depression are well under control thanks to correct medication and the ability to talk with someone every 3-4 weeks. I completely changed career paths and got a job as an analyst in the financial industry. I’m slowly discovering interests I never knew existed.
I have a positive attitude and mindset at least 80% of the time even during times of stress or situations that would have previously triggered me into a multi-day spiral.
I didn’t realize how bad it was until I was able to look at it from the other side.
I was toxic to be around. I was in a negative mindset most of the time. I trusted no one. I complained incessantly. I was broken as a person and never realized it.
How could I? I didn’t know any different. I needed to hit rock-bottom before I could be helped back up.
I’m standing up finally and ready to start the climb out of the pit I spent so many years digging for myself.
