I knew I had to save myself because I was too stubborn to accept help from anyone else. So I spent many long nights staring at the ceiling wondering how I could change my life around. I couldn’t think of the magical solution I was looking for, but then I realized that I didn’t need a solution, I just needed change. So I began by ignoring everything in my life that I felt I couldn’t deal with, and instead, tried to look for the silver lining in each day. I couldn’t change the events in my life, but I could decide which events I would dwell over and which I would walk away from. There was no big heroic moment in all this, but looking back, I needed saving and I did exactly that. For myself. For my future.
