Comparing myself to others is not a good trait to have, but in all reality it’s human nature. We all have this innate feeling that we want to fit in socially and be liked by our peers. For me, I don’t think that it’s that healthy to compare myself with others. I have to remember that I suffered a traumatic brain injury and my mind works differently now, it’s not the end of the world. In fact I see it as having saved my life. Before I got my traumatic brain injury I was completely and utterly addicted to drugs. Not just physically dependent on them either but everything that I did revolved around getting that next high. I did anything and everything that I could get my hands on. Like I stated before I believe that my OD was a saving grace for me because I would be dead if I continued on that path for much longer. I know I have a long road ahead of me but I have to take a deep breath and learn some patience. I know I have said this in the past but I honestly feel that now is the time that I will chance my life for the better. I want to get better so that I can get a boyfriend and a job, the normal things in life that every human being is chasing. So now all I have to do is put my thoughts into action. I know it will be hard but I don’t have any other choice!
