"People seem to think embracing life means to jump off cliffs and kiss strangers. Maybe it’s just slowly learning to love yourself."

Does it ever stop? Life needs to give me a break for a second or two. For the last few months it’s just one thing after the other. When things finally seem to be going alright, another things comes up. I’ve tried this over and over again and I don’t want it to end up like the last time. I just hope you’re willing to understand.
I’ve always thought that change is inevitable. Change is something that’s good or bad, happy or sad, and maybe even hard. But as I look back, there’s so many things I’d change. I’d think about how you felt and paid attention to what you were really trying to tell me. I would’ve tried a little harder in keeping our friendship. I wouldn’t complain so much but instead be more thankful. As I look back, I always look at myself and how I was hurt. I never thought about my loved ones around me and how they really felt. I was so selfish to the point I drove so many people away but I always painted myself as the victim. As I start a new chapter in a new place an home, I hope to only be a better version of myself.
"My happiness has to come from within myself or it is too fragile a thing to be of any use to me and too much of a burden to benefit any of my loved ones."
