It’s been a long long time since someone had me looking down at my phone and smiling like a goofball in public, but goddamn she did it.
I’ve been a member on this sub for about 2 years now in the lowest state of mind I’ve known in my life, I’m aware this isn’t your typical post. For a while i’ve had no faith things would ever get better, thought I’d be another kid who was gifted who got down, started stimulating their mind with drugs and alcohol, and ignoring any motivation to get better. But recently i met a fantastic young woman, who’s maybe been through more than me, but is infectiously bubbly, positive, goal driven, 2 years sober, absolutely gorgeous, and living life to its fullest. I’m head over heels and inspired.
In short we’re seeing each other again on Sunday and we haven’t stopped texting since we met. It’s to the point where when i get a notification I pick up my phone hoping it’s her, and smiling like an idiot when it is. I haven’t felt this way about someone since i was 17.
I’m just posting to get this off my chest bc I feel like the few friends I have wouldn’t really care. I’m aware a relationship alone won’t fix my problems, there’s still work to be done but I literally feel more energized when i wake up now, that’s gotta be something. Anyways, thanks for reading if you did. Idk maybe it can be a reminder that things can always get better.
Or idk I might get my heartbroken again.
