Yesterday I heard a song I used to like after a very long time. The first line of the song goes ‘I’m a stitch away from making it, and a scar away from falling apart’. It describes my feelings so well right now. I feel like, for the first time in a very long time, I have certain aspects of my life under control, and certain emotions such as stress and worry under wraps. I feel like I could achieve anything with this newfound happiness and motivation.
But I also feel really vulnerable, ‘a scar away from falling apart’. I think the way in which I sought out happiness has put me in a position where one negative incident could throw me off and have me spiralling back down to the bottom of the pit I have barely just climbed out of.
