Today’s the day. September 1st, 3 years ago is when I came home from Avanti a residential mental health treatment center for girls. Which I spent 6 months at. I cannot believe it’s been 3 years already. Sometimes I forget that all of this even happened but I am thankful for every moment & struggle I went through because it made me into the person I am today. I also want to thank everyone who has been there for me through these hard times. I would have never in a million years imagined that I would be where I am today. Hard work does pay off.
For anyone that struggles with depression, anxiety, self harm, or suicidal ideation YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Reach out for help. You may not want to or think you need to but if you feel this way please do. It does not get better overnight, it takes time but you deserve to live a happy life. It’s been 3 years and I am still working on myself everyday to be a better version of myself but I promise it gets better. Being sent to treatment was one of the best things to ever happen to me, I may have not thought so at the time but it saved my life.
