Fighting. That is how I spend my life.
I fight to survive. I fight every single day.
I am a fighter? Am I? I suppose I am.
Living with mental illness isnt easy. Being blind isnt easy. Life can be hard.
At times, its extremely tough. But I trudge on. I will survive, I keep surviving because I’ve come too far not to.
I do get jaded though. I am exhausted. The climb to reach the top of the mountain is so hard at times.
I have people who are rooting for me, my therapist, my psychiatrist, my mom.
For them, I will continue to fight. I will also do it for me. I deserve a life. I deserve to be happy, I know I am loved and now I have to learn to love myself as well.
