It’s my 23rd birthday ❤️ swipe for some pics of my lil animal crossing party 💕 ok, now prepare for a novel: I was really sad when I first found out I wasn’t gonna be able to celebrate the way I had planned due to the virus and the need for social distancing... but man am I so happy to just be here, chillin with my family and playing animal crossing. On my birthday 2 years ago my ex relapsed and was violent; even punched a hole in my door. I only could manage to see my mom for less than half an hour without worrying that I was upsetting him. when I got back from seeing her, he was so livid that she had purchased me flowers, because he also got me flowers. he insisted my mom was trying to “one up” him. The flowers she got me were Daisy’s, because our family dog daisy had recently passed. It had nothing to do with him, but he made it about him anyways. He was cold and drunkenly aggressive until I finally panicked and threw them out even though they meant so much to me. On my 22nd birthday he was shooting me with heroin and I couldn’t leave my bed. My only gift was from him taking my credit card without me knowing and lying that he bought it. Before I knew he used my card, I purchased really expensive tickets to see his favorite basketball team. I felt so loved from his gifts and wanted to make sure he felt the same from me; only to discover later that he got them using my own credit card. All this being said to stress just how damn happy I am to be sitting in my parents home right now, doing nothing but relaxing. I know people give me a hard time for mentioning my relationship with my ex so much, but unless you have been through something so traumatic and are trying to adjust to life on the other side, I ask you to try not to assume how you should act. I share because I hope someone who may still be in that situation sees my stories and sees similarities and gets out. I share because I’m still often so damn shocked I was living the way I was. connecting with other people about it helps me immensely. Anyways, I am grateful to be sober and safe. being with my family and seeing the smile on my mom’s face over the fact that I’m here with her is the best gift.
