This past year 2018 has been the hardest year of my life, both my parents got sick, my mom is a stroke survivor and is recovering and my dad got sick for a week and my mental health was spiraling, I discovered that I’m bisexual which was hard for me. I was struggling in college, I’m 20 years old going through all of this. My friend said it was my mind set that was the problem but what am I suppose to do when it’s bad thing after bad thing popping up. So eventually I got my life back on track. I was suicidal at one point and now I have goals in life and I’m looking forward to the future. I’m researching and looking around for opportunities to build myself up and I’m back to hitting the gym. My friend tried to discredit me and say that I didn’t grow as a person but how is this not growth? Going from being suicidal to building your life up and planning a future and being in mentally better place is major growth. He says that I run away from all my problems. From what I said were problems in my life, I can’t run away from these problems so I don’t know what he’s talking about. I feel like suicide would be running away from my problems so the fact that I’m still alive means I didn’t run away from anything. He downplays every good thing I do. So I’m questioning him being in my life.
