Private Journal Entry - July 8, 2009

This "private journal entry" was originally written for my eyes only.  A way to express myself openly and truthfully without feeling judged.  The emotions are raw, the writing, blunt and unedited, the feelings are sometimes very hard to revisit (at least the negative ones), but so very very real.

It is now published as part of my mental health timeline.  To start from the beginning, visit: Through Hell and Back (more than once)-Timeline of Recovery and Discovery.  

July 8, 2009

Tonight I felt/saw a glimpse of my old self.  I was out chatting with a group of neighbors.  The kids were all out playing and I was truly enjoying myself.  Gone was the social awkwardness and it was replaced with charm and whit.

I’ve missed that.  I had nothing to prove. 

I was just…myself. 

I hope I feel more of that to come.
