Hey! My names Brittney.
I have my journal for one specific reason.. I spent 4 years of my life in a very violent relationship that had led me to hospitalization and other things. I've been out of the relationship for about a year now.
I struggled as a teenager with depression, drug use, and alcoholism all of which I have been treated for. I am currently 21 years old, and i'll be 22 on March 20th.
I've finally found happiness in life, in fact, I can't imagine not living. I think it's a beautiful thing. I'm very passionate and happy about most things. There's only one thing left in my life that I haven't quite healed from and thats the domestic violence.
I didn't realize what kind of effect it would have on me after it was all over, so I guess what i'm trying to say is that i'm looking for support.
I'll be journaling a lot about that, and it might not always be something easy to read, OR understand. I'd like some friends that are willing to offer some advice/or friends who have been in a similar situation who could help me get through this the healthy way.
:) Thanks, everyone!
