But, during the summer of 2016 I met someone new, I started hanging out with my friends more and more, and soon I was fully back to my old self. I had all my friends, I had a new boyfriend, and everything was falling into place. During the beginning my junior year, I was on top of the world. But once again, everything fell apart.

Once again, I was blinded and let this go on for about 9 months, until I finally had enough control to end it, with all the support of my best friends. I did great for about 3 months, until summer 2017 rolled around, and somehow I got in contact with him. This was not good. Once again he took control of me and we weren’t even dating.
