I started taking yoga. I started challenging myself in small ways. I started seeing a therapist, making friends, developing hobbies, seeing doctors, reading books, educating myself, and working my way through. I’m not fully recovered yet, but I’m well on my way, and with the support of friends and family and the HOLSTEE Manifesto, I finally believe everything is going to be okay, which is a huge step for me. I didn’t like something, and I changed it, and that was tremendously empowering. I have the poster hanging in my room and the picture of the Manifesto is the background of my cell phone, so I’m able to have it as a reminder everywhere I go. It’s simple, but it’s so hard, but just believing that everything is going to be okay and letting go is the best gift you can give to yourself.
