The new beginning has begun. I’m back on track, able to function, able to work. All this I believe was possible due to this girl I met recently. We talked and talked for the first time and realized that we felt as if we had been talking since eons. I am now living alone in my room with friends living nearby. My routine has settled down. I did my laundry myself for the first time in four years. I’m happy in college now, making new friends. Loving life, life’s loving me. The pain may still try to hate me, but I’m happy about it too, fighting it, loving it, learning from it.
