Growing up I have had people – some friends, an ex, and even some family – tell me I was weird and different and no one was wanting to be friends with me or to be with me. Flash forward to now, I turned that around to prove them wrong. Now I have amazing friends who have stuck by my side through a lot and an amazing girl in my life who I love with all my heart and soul. She loves me back; they all do. I have had so many things happen in my life to show me that life is sometimes not a fairytale and that I am Only Human. I have had people tell me that they loved me and then go and stab me in the back after. Having been told I have anxiety and depression is a scary feeling and knowing that something in my mind is fighting to unhappy is terrifying.

Today I am still struggling and not my complete self but I am on this journey to be better and to do better for myself and my loved one. Someone told me once you are only human and you need to love yourself first. That is what I am working hard to do and show myself that my anxiety can not control my life anymore and my depression will not drag me down again. I hope I can find my happily ever after and love myself, acting as an example to others that everything will be okay and you will get through this.
