I think people use this space to unload their baggage far more than they share personal victories. Yes, this is a space to vent. Yes, this is a place to write things out. However, I don’t want to look back on this years from now and only remember the heart breaks and the moments I let myself slip through the cracks.
This is so important.
The past several months have been some of the most emotionally jarring, exhausting, and painful I’ve experienced. There were times when I’ve felt hopeless, like there was no end in sight. I’ve wanted to run.
But I kept my grades high. I explored more of this beautiful city than I ever have before. I got an internship that I love. I declared a minor, a concentration, and am planning to study abroad in Norway next fall. I got to see some great music, and am constantly discovering more. I became of brother of APO and completely nearly 85 hours of service in my community, more than anyone else in the fraternity. I was elected service chair. I made dozens of new friends. I live with my best friend. After a stint of drinking way to much, I cut it down substantially, on my own terms. I avoided harming myself, even when I had a strong urge to. It’s so, so important that I put aside the pain and exhaustion sometimes and take a moment to be proud of myself for what I’ve accomplished, despite of it. I’ve never thought of myself as strong, but this semester, I’ve been strong.▲4 | reblog
