In all honesty, this is a post more for me than anyone else, my way of congratulating myself on how far I've come. 

My 2016 has been interesting to say the least, my girlfriend's undiagnosed mental health issues flared up from new year and it pretty much threw my whole world into chaos. I didn't know what to do or how to help or even if we'd make it through it all - but we did. 

In the past year, I've come so far and learnt so much about myself as a person, and so much about the people around me in my life. I've met the most amazing people and found my platonic soulmate, I've passed my first year of uni and I've begun recovery. I've fought for what I want and need in my life and I've begun to put myself first. 

My relationship is stronger than ever, my self confidence and self belief are higher than I ever thought they could be, - I honestly feel like I can say that I'm happy and content with my life, for the first time in a long time. 

So whether it sounds vain or not, well done me. You've dealt wth a lot in the past year and it wasn't easy, but you've come out the other side stronger than ever - I'm so proud of you.
