It’s not a secret that I used to be lost, but when I started looking back at my old pictures, I realized how extreme my loneliness and confusion was. It’s crazy to look back at the old me; a hurt, cynical, depressed, self-conscious, druggie. I was completely alone… Not one person could comfort me or support me in the way that I wanted. Everyone let me down, and eventually, everyone I cared about left. Today I can see clearly and, when I look at the past, my heart breaks for the miserable life that I led. I was trapped, tied down, and suffocating. Today I have something greater than happiness; I have joy. I feel at peace with myself and I feel so far from being alone. I am loved and I love. God is so good.
Whoever called the night a blanket, had never felt the cold.
