When my real life started

I’m sitting in bed just thinking of how quickly my high school graduation is coming up. I’ve had a great year as my semester is coming to an end.

I took easier classes so I would have less mental breakdowns over homework, especially (I’m a high school senior and I had to look up how to spell especially lol) because I was taking multiple AP classes.

However, thinking about what I have been told by my teachers this year has me thinking. My teachers say “Soon real life is going to start for you.” but haven’t I been living it. I see real life as learning from mistakes, laughing, crying, first kisses, first loves, heartbreak, and learning who you are.

This is real life I’ve learned so much and not just in academics. So I have been living real life, we all have. I know when I graduate and start to become more independent I will face challenges and learn more about the world and the people living in it but what I have lived so far is so real to me.

Real life is more than paying bills. I have a mood disorder and when I was diagnosed that has made me see things in a different light. Being diagnosed was probably the best thing that could have happened to me because I learned so much about much about myself and had time to reflect on how others feel/react/are going through even if you don’t know.

So I have been living real life. You have been living real life. Real life doesn’t start at adulthood. It starts as we are born and become who we want to be.

Reasoning

Starting this blog was suggested by my therapist months ago. I have sat on the idea hesitant but now I have grown some balls and done it. I believe I have sat on this for so long because I didn’t know what I could bring to the table and frankly I still don’t. But along the way I hope through my rants, stories, internal questions I can gain some composure along the way. I wish for who ever is reading out there to join with me through comments, questions, advice, ect. so I don’t or we don’t have to ride through this rough world alone. Excited for what is in store on my blogging journey!
