A friend suggested I try using GIMP to edit photos. I’m happy with it so far. Especially the free part.
My current apartment is the first place that I’ve ever had on my own that has been nice. Nice in a comfortable way. Not perfect, but a place I enjoyed coming back to. I liked my things. I felt safe.
I haven’t had a rough patch mentally speaking until quite recently. Of course it happens here, too. It no longer feels as safe as it once did because the bouts of anxiety and depression happen just as easily here. When you carry the poison inside there’s no cozy nest where it can’t get you.
It isn’t fair, is it? Everyone should have a place they can feel safe.
