you should understand something: things are good with me. really. i’m in a place far better than i could have ever expected. i have people to keep me company and make me laugh. i have times in which i can stand and breathe; fill my lungs with this air and drown in it. i have memories that i keep dear to me, and new ones that i make every day. you’d be proud of what i’ve made of myself. i’d say you’d be shocked, but let’s be honest, you always knew what i could become. you always had this extraordinary faith in me, without reason and without fail.
