I’ve been through enough big things that I’ve learned the value of being able to look back on what was hard. I’ve learned that it always passes, but that the lessons stay. Tonight I was looking at some pictures with my mom. On my 21st birthday I could hardly stay awake in the car on the way to my birthday gathering. I was just so down and fatigued. Just depressed.
She said, “Those are some pretty deep, dark days to look back on.”
Yes, they are. And I’m so happy to be looking back, not being in them.
…because love wins.
