Numbering Recovery


3- the years of my life I spent wishing I could forget him

2- the years I’ve been in a relationship recovering

1- the number of men it took to ruin my life.


10- my new boyfriend’s birth month

8- the amount of days I spent in the hospital

6- the times he convinced me to come back

4- the amount of interviews I have this week

2- the friends I lost to him


5- closest friends who help me grow

3- colleges I want to apply to

1- the times I’ve cut this year

0- the amount of times I’ll fear him anymore
