Success of a Different Kind

Question 29: Do you think happiness is achievable? What steps are you taking to make it a reality?

Answer:

I do think that happiness is achievable, as temporary as it may be or seem. I am actively trying to engage in things that bring me joy and cutting out any enemies of progress or negative energy. I want to be great and I realise that that requires a strong presence of positive energy and support.

Question 30: What are your expectations for 2017? In terms of self-love and your mental health?

Answer:

I expect great things. I am keen for development, personally and career-wise. I haven’t believed in myself as much as I have in the past month, which was helped by the fact that my parents have supported me fully, and made me believe in myself. I learn new things about how to manage my mental health every day and I am always open to realisations/new ways to ensure that I live a happy, fulfilling life.

Question 26: How do you feel about your scars and past mistakes?

Answer:

I’ve learnt so much from them but if I were to sit down and really think over the past 4 years, I would cry incessantly.

Question 27: What is the most affected part of your body due to self harm? How does it make you feel?

Answer:

Probably my stomach. I [used to] do so much to numb the pain in terms of alcohol and any pills containing paracetamol to cover up the hunger pains, because I don’t eat when I’m stressed, anxious, worried or sad.

Question 28: Why is recovery important to you?

Answer:

Honestly, I am not brave enough to end it all for real. So, if I’m going to do this living thing, I might as well live my best life. My journey to [some semblance of] recovery so far has helped me become a more positive person (except when it comes to love, obviously). And all I really want is to shine through the dark cloud.
