Unexplored Territory

In a matter of seconds, her phone was flooded with dating apps and her friends were already giving her a billion pieces of advice on how to create a profile that showed a little bit of everything. -They have to see that you are funny. - But not a clown. - That you can be…

And we’ll keep on fighting ’til the end

She was panicking big time that day and despite she had been in several interviews in the past weeks, this one was particularly stressful. She really wanted that job and honestly, despite the Job Center was acting like a total sweetheart, she needed the office hours and the responsibility only a job can give you. Being indoors…

All mighty old couch

A few posts ago I started sharing the story of a girl I know and deeply care about. A girl that was broken to the point where she thought nothing could make her smile anymore or couldn't find many reasons to move on, but despite all those negative feelings and that desire of just giving…

Turn it up

And so like the sunshine that gets brighter by the hour, she put herself up again. She called her friends and arranged her week so she wouldn't be alone too much. It was almost over.. days away from truly starting from scratch. It was time to say goodbye and actually mean it. No more sad…

Blueberry Mode

Finally, that feared letter arrived and her emotions were all over the place. She really needed that to be positive news. To start the week happy and hopeful.

Roasted

The answers took forever and she was already a mess by the time they told her she didn't have to take care of some of that money. Even if she had to pay something she didn't even know existed, it was less and with the help she was going to get from the job center,…

Money Monster

Day after day, the sad songs started to become just songs and not a living memory of everything she had lost. She was healing very, very slowly... but she was. Nights weren't nightmares anymore and now she was able to actually rest. To turn off the lights and not cry of loneliness. To go to…

Burning bridges

That first night truly alone was more painful than expected. Everything was seriously real now. He was gone and despite everyone agreed it was for the best, she still loved him (or at least she loved the lie she was living in). The last threads of hope she was holding on to were dead with…

It’s all coming back

She knew she was getting better. Her family and all her new and old friends were helping her step by step. Talking for hours with Skype or WhatsApp. Making her meet new people. Taking her to picnics. Keeping her mind out of everything. And with a lot of strength, it was working. She had been…
