I know I've not had the easiest life .
I've struggled with self harm , eating disorders and PTSD
I never thought I could ever get better
I never thought I could be this immortal thing called "happy
I always faked a smile
But lately , I've been happy for real
I've gotten a job as a lifeguard , at a local waterpark
I've gotten my first paycheck !
And I haven't self harmed in almost 3 months !
It's been hard but it's been worth it !
I'm no longer the old me I am THE NEW ME!!
The happy me!!
My past does not define me .
It strengthens me
