Sometimes hitting your lowest is what you need to do to make you able to plan out your journey to becoming the you that you were always meant to be. Reminds me of a quote from J.K. Rowling: “Rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.” ♥
I stuck around for so long because you were all I ever knew. I never knew better existed. However, now I hope this is real 8 and I never have to just stick around like I did for him. I won't do it for as long as he had me. Now my happiness is first.
