G is for Going Forward

Trigger warning.  There is mention of a suicide attempt.

G is for Going Forward.  Around this time last year, I was in the hospital after a failed suicide attempt.  I’ve always had a decent job and a loving family, but my bipolar disorder clouded my vision.  I was a “not-church-going” Catholic and definitely missing a spiritual connection in my life.  My life felt empty and pointless.

Today, on different medications, I’m fairing much better.  I’m dealing with my symptoms as they arise instead of letting them build up.  I’m creating a fulfilling spiritual life for myself and finding an online community of people doing the same thing.  My marriage is stronger because we both attempt to work on the weaknesses.  I’m working overnights, creating a lot less stress and anxiety and giving me more autonomy.  I started writing again, something I hadn’t done in years.  The relationship that I’m developing with my Gods is creating the groundwork for a satisfying life.  I’m looking for exuberance, and I think I’m on the right path.
