I ate a breakfast burrito and wasn't scared of the calories I just ate,

I realized just a little earlier that, despite the mental hangups I still have, I'm still very much improved compared to the way I was a few years ago.

Once upon a time, years ago, there wasn't a day that went by where my inner traumas made me talk my best friend's ear off all day long, any day that I could, where I literally couldn't talk about anything else.

Nowadays, while I still have issues and things that I complain about, things that bother me a lot... I find that I no longer have any interest whatsoever in ranting or railing about the same things I used to talk my best friend's ear off about back then. In a way... considering how obsessive I was over those topics back then, that is a miracle in of itself.

Ten years ago, I never thought I would oneday reach the day where I could honestly not talk about--barely even THINK about--the stuff I used to scream about every single day back then.

I'm proud of myself because I resisted my suicidal and self-harmful thoughts. However, I'm not really proud of myself for engaging in more compulsive behaviours than usual.

Because I reached out to my best friend when I was having a really hard time - I've never ever contacted anyone when I felt suicidal, so it was a really big step for me!
And she was just really fantastic, so now I'm feeling all warm and fuzzy inside :D

I'm proud that I cleaned my home, did the laundry, and cooked dinner.
