my grandma passed away. it was labor day. 

I’ve looked back about what I wrote about her and it is all so real still…so fresh. 

I’m in tears because I miss her so much.

Your soulmate is not someone that comes into your life peacefully. It is who comes to make you question things, who changes your reality, somebody that marks a before and after in your life. It is not the human being everyone has idealized, but an ordinary person, who manages to revolutionize your world in a second …

I think the biggest thing I still struggle with is feeling like I’m so behind everybody else when it comes to things. I literally feel like I’m 15 years behind the rest of the people my age when it comes to communication and relationships.

Yet it makes sense because I was 15 when the trauma occurred that I could remember and I’ve spent years trying to overcome, forget and repress that memory before I tried to deal with it in a healthy manner. I had no idea about the abuse prior to the trauma, yet that explains so much.

I get so frustrated because I feel like making friends shouldn’t be this tough but then I remember that I don’t know what a healthy relationship looks like. To me friendship isn’t somebody I play softball with once a week. For me friendship is somebody that I have an intimate relationship with, where there is a connection, where we get to know each other on a different level.

I also tend to over think things so that doesn’t help either.
