It’s been exactly a year since I walked into planned parenthood with tears in my eyes and made the toughest decision of my life. It feels like just yesterday I was on my way to my appointment just asking for a sign, wondering if this was the right choice. I can remember every detail from that day. So clear I feel like I could almost smell the air.
It was hard, so hard. It still is some days. Especially with what’s going on in the world right now but I think I’m finally okay with my decision. At first I wasn’t and I cried, a lot. Then I felt numb. Now most of those feelings are gone and I am able to understand the decision I made and realize it was for the best.
I still think about it. I still cry. I still question everything. But for the most part it has gotten much better. I am writing this today in hopes to help people who may of felt like me. It’s been a year and LIFE GOES ON. It’s not always easy but everything begins to make sense. We are strong. It will all be ok.
