Semicolon (;)

Connecting with you has been a blessing in disguise.
A year ago, I would have never thought this is where I would be.

You've helped me grow as a person (individually and mentally).
I feel stronger about myself.
I feel stronger about my goals.

I couldn't tell you the last time
I thought about harming myself.
I couldn't tell you the last time
I fell asleep crying.
I couldn't tell you the last time
I dreamt about dying.

You didn't say much.
You didn't do much.
You didn't have to.

Without realizing it    
You helped me advance at work
and find my motivation to fight for my goals.
I had silently given up
when all I thought about was surviving each day
and not think about the next day.

Now, I think about things I want to do.
New hobbies I want to try.
Now, I care about improving myself.
Being a better person. 

Most importantly, I no longer feel like a victim.
I no longer think like a victim.
I no longer feel threatened like a victim.
I no longer fear like a victim.

Although, this is the end of this chapter.
It is only the beginning of a new one.

I am happily choosing to end this chapter
and begin a new one. 

Thank you Cici, Mustafa, and Ricky 
for being there when I was at my lowest.

Thank you Danny for showing me how to live again
without fear and regret.

To the rest of you, keep on Surviving in this crazy world we live in. 

-M.M.
