This year has been a year of change. Between January and June, I went from being a weak, sickly, depressed girl, to a strong, empowered, positive woman. I figured out that I am very sensitive to changes in diet, sleep, and exercise, and that the constant depression/bipolar symptoms I had struggled with, could actually be minimised with the simplest of things. My regular acupuncture sessions, and the simple act of treating myself with respect, brought out a person with qualities I never knew I had. I would look back at the sad being I used to be with pride, and often comment how I used to not be able get out of bed - and how far behind me that phase was. I almost felt disgusted with who I used to be. "Thank goodness that's over," I'd think.
But pride comes before a fall.
