A New Year!
Making a pile of all the things I’ve made just for myself this year has been a nice way to shift my focus from all the ways this year has been incredibly difficult, and remember the things I have accomplished.
I’ve had my heart broken in more ways than I can count. I’ve been told that my greatest fear, that being neurodivergent makes me unlikeable, is true. I’ve struggled to maintain a regular consistent social media presence with Knit Me. My physical and mental health has been the worst of my life.
But with all this upheaval, I’m still here—and that in itself is something to be proud of. The people who have stayed in my life have gone above and beyond to remind me that my presence is not a burden. I’ve finally learned that don’t need to accept or forgive cruelty or callousness in order to be loved. And despite everything, Knit Me has grown astronomically since I started it just over a year ago (and we were featured on TV!). I am so unbelievably lucky and grateful to have such incredible support and community in my life.
So, with all that in mind, I look forward to going into this new decade with the people who love me, and an attitude of “well it can’t be any worse than last year “ ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
