The future

Leia Skywalker


I don't know where I will be in a few months, all I know is that I have to leave. I have to leave and get to a new place. Not just to start fresh, but because I can't end up like the rest of them. If I stay then I admit defeat, I admit that I can't do it. I won't let it happen. I will leave. 

Every time I come back to this town it literally hurts, my heart sinks and it becomes to breathe. This town is literally trying to kill me. If I get stuck here then what? Will I ever feel better, or accomplish anything?

I don't want to be famous, I don't want to be a billionaire, I just want to be happy and safe. 
That answer can only happen when I live and start a new chapter in my life, I cannot continue with the same chapter forever.

It will get better, I just can't see it yet. I can't see the future but I have to trust that at some point it really will work out. It may take a long time, but I can get there. Some day.

You will get there!  It can be hard to see things getting better. But you are strong! I only live in the next county over from where I used to and where much of my trauma happened, I definitely had planned to go further....but I do have relief having left my old home. I feel safer having even only 30 minutes of distance. I can avoid places and people who might trigger. Much healing thoughts and :hug:You got this.
