Living in the now. The art and benefits of letting go.

I have met so many fascinating people lately because I stopped isolating myself at home. Stopped wrapping myself in that wet, smelly depression blanket. Stopped pulling the blinds down, spending days wallowing in self-pity. I stopped self-medicating 4 months ago. Stopped numbing my pain (and senses!) and as a result I stopped feeling worthless.

To the friend who cut me off when I hit rock bottom: Thank You!

About four months ago now, I started dealing with some problems and issues that I have faced for the most part of my life but never had the courage to deal with. And it worked!
