For so long I've been at a roadblock, unwilling to move forward. I've stopped myself from being happy, from doing all I can to succeed. This semester, I'm changing. Whether or not I actually succeed is irrelevant, I just want my mind to be happy. I just want to know that I tried my best. I want to prove that I'm good for something. It's not going to be easy, I've been set in my ways for...forever. I spent my whole life thinking I wasn't good enough for success or happiness. And that is a mindset that is ridiculously difficult to change. My best friends have given me motivation; they told me that they think that I can do it, and that they will help me. And that is literally the best present I could ever receive.
