Although I am struggling with depression and low self esteem, I do know that I have a lot to be grateful for when it comes to my life. I have friends that truely care about me, I am a homeowner – something I never thought I would accomplish, I have a career, not too many financial troubles, I can still do most of what I want to do if I do it in moderation, I am typing this blog in a hotel in London where I spend the weekend with a friend. And mostly, I don’t owe anyone anything (except my mortgage to the bank).
Yes, I am not where I want to be, I am not a mum, not in happy relationship, I have the joints of an 80 year old woman and have been chronically in pain since I am 18, and I suffer from depression. But despite all of this, my life is worthwhile, I just need to remind myself of that every now and than, and appreciate it more.
