What a difference 4 years can make โ˜€๏ธ 4 years ago I was hurting myself and everyone around me, miserable and more mentally ill than I'd like to admit--now at 25, I'm so proud of who I am and how hard I've worked to be ok.

Thank you everyone who wished me a happy birthday! TBH turning 25 was kinda hard for me... accepting the fact that I haven't achieved all that I thought I would by this age when I was 12 and planning out my entire life ๐Ÿ˜ฐ But that's life isn't it? It doesn't exactly pan out like you plan but that's ok. I still have lots that I want to achieve and even though I feel like an old fart I'm still so very thankful to be surrounded by friends and family ๐Ÿ’œ #thisis25
