For the longest time my life was always the same. The only thing that would be different was my schedule at school. Day in and day out I was a teller, a student, and a friend to the same group of people.
For the past two years I feel as my surroundings (people and places) and the person I am are constantly changing.
My group of friends drastically changed. I no longer hang out with them due to that group being a huge source of drama. We all changed too much and grew apart. But because of this change I feel that I am more able and comfortable to be myself than ever before.
I moved into a different apartment in a better area.
I ended a very long relationship and started a new one. The new one is the best one yet with someone who takes such awesome care of me. He was the start of being comfortable with being me. He is very understanding and doesn't judge. It makes him happy to see me change and grow. I love that about him.
I also recently decided to join roller derby. That alone will take up a lot of time but it also means new friends and experiences.
Sadly soon my current relationship will end for the time being. He is heading out on the road to perform and travel. It's something he wants to do and is very excited for, but I'm not ready to join him. That means I may not even see him for as long as a year if he doesn't make it over here to the east coast to visit. We both are going to go through a lot of growth and change. It will be interesting to see the result for both of us and to see if we can happily be together again. I love him dearly and the 28th of this month is going to be rough. It hurts to think of him being gone. Thankfully I have amazing friends. They may be in CT but they will be there to help me along.
Even though it's not easy I've found change to be good for me. It's a start to a new you at every turn. No matter the stress it causes it seems to usually be a good thing for me. I'll just have to power through the tough changes.
