“​You’ve Changed.”

Since I was discharged from the hospital.

Things haven’t been the same.

Some for the better.

Some for the worst.

Friendships aren’t the same.

People I thought were once there for me, have distanced themselves.

They’ve banned together growing a new found bond over my dark episode.

I’ve scared people.

They walk on eggshells.

They don’t know how to interact with me.

It hurts. I know I’ve changed.

I’ve changed for the better, no longer am I a YES girl…I now have the strength to keep boundaries, speak my mind and stand up for myself.

I am no longer a worn out door mat unraveling and faded in color.

I am stronger.

I am more loving.

I am more understanding.

I am assertive.

I am changed so that I can keep living this life.

Here’s what they maybe don’t quite understand…..

If I hadn’t changed….

I wouldn’t be here today.

So please, be patient with me.

Please don’t give up on me.

Please take the time to get to know the changed me.
