I'm officially 18!

Honestly, I might cry... I never thought I would make it this far. This is such a huge milestone for me - when I was younger I always thought I would be dead by now - I would fantasize about tragic accidents happening to me that would end my life, I would think about suicide, or I would think about my future in general and think things like "too bad that will never happen because I won't be here by then".

But now I've made it; I've actually made it - I'm officially a legal adult - and despite the gender dysphoria, confused sexuality, racist/homophobic/transphobic family, bullying, depression, anxiety disorder, losing my best friend to cancer, suffering from an abusive relationship for three years, and wanting SO BAD to give up - I HAVE MADE IT.

I am no longer in an abusive relationship. I have found someone who loves me for who I am. I have made new friends, have come out to most of them, and have a brand new and super strong support system. I have gotten therapy for my anxiety and depression and they are slowly getting better. I've been accepted into college in the fall. I've been offered scholarships to this college. I am four months away from graduating high school.

I AM a success story. I am proud of myself, and I am proud to say to everyone out there: YOU CAN MAKE IT. IT GETS BETTER.

I am 18, and I pledge from this day forward to NEVER GIVE UP.

I like your new hair!
Sorry this is so incredibly late, but thank you for the favourites, I appreciate them.

How have you been? I haven't had the time to read any journal entries, unfortunately. :/

I hope you've been having a nice day. :)
