Tifp because I'm finally to the point where I'm the strongest and buffest I've ever been in my entire life, going to the gym 3 days a week for an hour each time, even with juggling school, work, homework, depression, anxiety, and loneliness issues. I have my friends to thank for encouraging me to actually do it!!

TIFP because even though I relapsed into self-harm, I managed to be open and honest about it to my girlfriend and that helped me put it into perspective and deal with it on my own terms. I don't blame myself and managed to not turn it into a huge failure which set me back years (it'd been 5 years clean before this) and instead used it to pinpoint a thing that had been bothering me way more than I thought and started dealing with it accordingly. I love myself now more than then 5 years ago <3

TIFP Because at my second day of uni I had to go there completely by myself and come back (I've never taken trains alone) AND MY PHONE DIED but I didn't even panic and I managed to do everything on time!!! This is really huge for me

Get out of town! That’s incredible!

TIFP, not for me, but for my little brother. He recently got the help he needed to escape his abuser, took her to court, got her imprisoned, and took to therapy. He's come so far already, and I can't wait to see him once he's healed a little more
