I feel like I have gone through a lot of things in the past year. Its strange to say, but i feel like my life as changed so much and I’m only 18 years old. Even though I have a lot more to learn I’m figuring out who I am. And also figuring out who other peole are. The past year I’ve had my heart broken from boyfriends to best friends. It seems silly, but i felt very unhappy at the time. I thought I was loosing my mind. I finally have overcome all of that and its made me a better person. I found out you have to really know someone to put your guard down for them. It’s difficult, but i can honestly say I have become a better person from being hurt. Don’t get me wrong I hate getting hurt, but I’m glad that i grew from it and I’m stronger because of it.
