Little did I know my life would change forever. Everything that I though was important to me, suddenly was not. Everything and everyone I thought made me happy, now just made me feel hopeless and unworthy.
My life took a backwards turn, and all I could feel was pain. Pain from my fractured spine, pain in knowing my career may be over, pain of feeling unwanted or unloved, and pain in the uncertainty of ever walking again. This pain was unbearable and I just wanted it all to end. No one could help me, no one could save me, no one except....her!
She saved my life in more ways than one. She never gave up on me or let me give up on myself, even when I was a stubborn asshole most of the time. She saw the real me, the scared, anxious, hopeless me. She gave me hope when I had none. She showed me how to laugh again and what it means to truly love someone unconditionally. Everything that I am now is because of her.
Who knew that the most unusual twist of fate would be the most beautiful blessing in disguise.
