Wow. It has been a while since I have logged on to this site.
Tonight I am just having one of those nights where I am thinking about my experience and feeling for those who have felt what I have felt before. I came across an entry I shared a few months back. I was at a very low point where I felt like everything was falling apart. I am glad to say those feelings have mostly gone away.
I think anyone who goes through an abortion can agree that emotions come and go in waves. Sometimes we feel such relief, other times pure sadness, and sometimes just confusion. I don’t think that will ever stop. It’s something we will always have to deal with but we just fight to stay strong and learn how to cope better but it does get easier.
I am at a totally different place mentally than I was when I wrote my last entry and I am doing so much better. I’m not saying there will never be another time when I feel like that again, but I think I am slowly realizing that the decision I made is not one I can change ever, but one I can reflect on and learn from. I see the light at the end of the tunnel.
I want anyone who is reading this to know that the darkness will fade. Things will make sense. It’s not always easy but you are strong and you can pull yourself out of whatever dark hole you have ended up in. If you are reading this and you are struggling, I am here for you and I am sure many other people on this site are as well. Talk to someone. Text the helpline. Leave a comment on my post. We are all in this together, and I am happy to be a listening ear for anyone.
If you are reading this, it is your sign that life goes on and happiness can always be found. Sending my love.
