    Getting offered a job interview
    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley

    Love this thread! And I'm so pleased to hear about everybody else's highlights :smile::heart:

    I think my highlight was handing in my first draft of my dissertation. It was quite an early deadline so my supervisor said she wasn't expecting a complete draft...but I took that on as a challenge and managed to complete a full draft so that was a big relief indeed :smile:

    My highlights are:
    - got my 365 days of self care journal 
    - managed to take this time off to relax a bit, and the suicidal thoughts haven't been as bad as I imagined 😊
    - helping out an elderly lady
    - got some things done that I've been putting off for a while. 
    - and finally, got some more writing done, 2 blog posts up and sent one off to The Mighty 😊 💖

    I fiiiinally organised two drawers in my bedroom that have been annoying me. Now I have a first aid box (why didn't I have this before?), a drawer for getting myself ready in the morning and one for bathroom products. Also cleared out some other junk from my room. :) 
    The truth resists simplicity.

    1. My friend bought me 2 chocolate bars and a bag of sweets for my birthday as well as a card.

    2. The year 11's let me join their little party/legal rave at break time (there were no drugs and it was in a classroom where teachers could keep an eye on us just in case.)

    3. Enjoyed a delicious pizza at lunchtime. 

    4. My science teacher found me walking past her classroom after I came out of mentoring.  She called me over. I thought that I was in trouble. She gave me a box of chocolates.

    5. I didn't miss my bus.

    My highlight has to be the sunny weather this weekend too!
    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    - I had pizza and chips for lunch on Monday.

    - I had fish fingers, chips and beans for lunch on Thursday. 

    - I get to have meatballs for dinner tonight.

    I added a lovely status update for my friends and family on WhatsApp. Hopefully it will cheer them up during this difficult time.

    I was flying down the corridor with a classmate at school whilst we were rehearsing a monologue. Yes we were trying to fly. 

    And yes, I am still going to school.
