For the past couple of days I’ve been doing a lot of thinking. I look at the people around me. I look at where I am. I look at where I’ve been and what I’ve done this past year. I look at the person I’ve become.
When I returned to England a few months ago, I was heartbroken. I was on the edge of a breakdown. Not because I left South Korea. And not because I left my friends behind. And certainly not because I was returning to England. I was heartbroken because I felt like I had lost myself. I didn’t recognise this new me.
Returning to England has made me realise how much I’ve changed over the past year or so. It’s made me realise how much I value my family. It’s made me understand how important it is to value yourself.
I have had a tough week. Lots of bad days. I’m currently sick with a cold and I’ve lost my voice. But I’m not going to let that discourage me. I’ve had a fantastic start to 2017. I’m determined for that positive attitude to continue.
I’m going to continue to keep fighting. I’m going to strive to look after and love myself more.
I’m 23 years old and I have my whole life ahead of me. I can do this, because I am strong and determined.
Thank you very much for reading. I hope that you had a lovely weekend. ❤
