Hi all, just thought I'd give another update regarding my progress.
Just to let you all know, I'm really happy at the moment! I'm doing really well, and I'm challenging myself to do a lot of things I wouldn't normally have the courage to do!
Although I'm still a bit of a loner, I guess I've come to understand that we are all are loners at some point in our life, and that it's sometimes okay - the need for people all the time doesn't become quite as much when you're less depressed. It's very much like, for the first time I've looked at myself and life and realised we're all sailing in the same boat - we all have our stormy events.
I find now that the depressive thoughts I used to get about my self-image and the way my life was heading are now non-existent. And instead of blaming my luck, and my so-called 'fate', I have learned to be in more control and take action when necessary rather than waiting for something to happen for me.
So I wish all the best for everyone!
Have a wonderful christmas! and a happy new year!
