Maybe the world's not such a bad place

This post will be short and sweet because I want to blog, but just have a couple little things to say.

The past few weeks have been challenging as I've dealt with change after change after change and nothing seems definite and I've felt quite alone. But after a week of consistent breakdowns and waking up in the morning with a sense of deep hopelessness, I've been reminded and encouraged that I need to keep my head up.

I am quite lucky to be surrounded with some of the most down to earth people who genuinely care about my well-being and are interested in me enough to get to know me beyond the bubbly exterior I sometimes put out as a shield.

Because of the patience and the care of my wonderful best friends, my newer friends and my wonderful boyfriend, I've been encouraged and uplifted. I've been reminded that it's ok to not be ok. It's ok to fall apart and need people to lean on. It's ok to cry and share your pain with others. And then it's more than ok to, not forget it, but let it go in hopes of seeing that the hope of happiness and peacefulness in the future far outweighs the burdens we carry now.

I've been reminded of that kind of love people have for me the past few days, and the knowledge that even just a couple on this planet love me enough to be there with me on this roller coaster is enough to give me hope that I can smile again and know that everything will work out in the end.
