Hello, everybody. This is me, Erika.
A year ago I was a mess, a total and complete mess. I didn’t like my body, my job or myself… but I did nothing to change it, I just chose to be depressed. I thought depression was out of my control but actually, it was a choice. I chose not to be happy because I thought I needed many things to accomplish fulfilment or happiness.
A year ago I was different but throughout it I chose to work with the tools I found through this blog, through all the wonderful people I read and the amazing ones who read me who I get to call friends. You know who you are ;).
I started this blog to be inspired and never imagined I would receive comments from people saying how I inspired them. You have been the ones who keep me going. Everytime I was down and wrote about it, one comment from an amazing person behind his/her computer would make me know I was not alone. I am not alone and I know it because of you.
I wanna tell you that you are an extremely important factor in my recovery and I love you for that.
A year ago I didn’t have a blog family. Today, I do.
PS: Keep writing in your wonderful blogs. Even though I’ve been absent from mine, I’ve kept reading yours.
