    Ethameshep got a reaction from Seeker206 in Things really do get better   
    A couple years ago, I was at the lowest point in my life.  I had nothing and no one.  I slept most of the time because being awake was too much effort. I had no will to live, and wished to fall asleep and never wake up.
    One evening I went outside for some reason.  It was perfect spring weather, the sun was setting, and it was so peaceful. I had convinced myself there was nothing good or beautiful in life, because that was the only way I could cope. But as I sat there, I couldn't help but think "This is nice".  That moment made me realize I had been lying to myself, and my whole mindset suddenly changed.  If I couldn't count on anyone else for help, then I would have to help myself.  If nothing was going to change on its own, then I would have to make it change.
    Since then, I re-enrolled in school, finished my education, made new friends, had new experiences, and got a new job.  I'm almost 25, the age I never expected to reach, and I'm thinking about the future as something I will be part of.
    I never believed people who said "things get better", but now I'm saying it myself.

    Ethameshep reacted to Nightjar in Goodnight thread   
    For those of us with noone to say goodnight to I thought it would be nice to have a good night thread.
    I realise we are in many different time zones here but I'm hoping there might be some of us in sync with our bedtimes..
    It's comforting to have a goodnight isn't it? 🌷
