Song to listen to while reading this: Magic by Coldplay



“My family doesn’t like her. She used to be a drug addict and was very open about her struggles and her journey to recover. I think she’s brave for choosing to get better, but my family thinks she’s a ticking time bomb. A part of me wants to listen to everyone around me, because their approval means a lot to me. The other part of me knows she is the best thing to happen to me and I will hold her hand through this journey of hers.”
