Hello! Welcome to my blog about self love, well-being, & living a happier life: Self Love Script. For my first post, I wanted to fill you in on this past year of my life and what led me to start my own blog!
Thinking about this year, being 25 (just turned 26!), I have never had a more eye opening year. I know I’ve said it out loud to the people closest to me a million times but something changed when I turned 25. And honestly a lot has changed this year.
My 3 year relationship ended during the first part of my 25th year. There’s a lot of things that have made me feel sad, but nothing ripped me apart until I completely lost someone I once thought would be the person I would be with forever.
When you’re in your early 20’s, you don’t realize how much maturing and change you’re going to go through until it just happens. This causes people to grow apart. There are so many personal aspects to what happened that the people closest to me know about, but at the end of the day, it happened because we ended up being very different people.
Another part of the year that has been extremely difficult for me and still sometimes is, is dealing with anxiety and depression. Several days every month I am not someone I enjoy being. I think things are getting better, at least I hope so. I know so many people struggle with anxiety and depression – please know you are not alone. 💙
I am here to tell you: things get better.
I have made several new friends this year. It’s hard making friends when you’re an adult, so that’s something I’m proud of!
I started a new job that is actually pretty fun and the lowest stress job I’ve ever had. Need I say more?
I went to 3 concerts! One was of my lifelong favorite band and it was an absolutely incredible night I got to experience with 4 people I love spending time with and hold dear to my heart. Two I experienced with one of my best friends who I’ve known for 10 years this year now! Wow. One was spent with my amazing mom.
I met an amazing human this year who I am lucky enough to call my boyfriend. I hate sounding cheesy (who am I kidding, I kind of love it) but this guy was so worth the wait, and the love we share is just incredible. He wants to cook dinner for me, wants to spend time with my family, wants to go new places, and has an amazing energy and ambition about life. I thought I knew what I was looking for, but I found so much more.
This year started off really testing me. I am proud of myself for always knowing and reminding myself that things get better.
Plus – I started this blog!! 💛
