I'm Making These Mental Health Goals for 2018

2017 is over, and now it’s the start of new beginnings. All in all, 2017 was a terribly tough year.

I had to put my beloved dog to sleep after being best friends for almost 15 years. My parent’s divorce was finalized after an exhausting, emotionally-draining two year battle. My dad’s alcohol addiction is at an all-time high, and I had to save his life twice because of it. And now I’m forced to move 600 miles away because of mom caring more about money than her children.

More than anything, I need 2018 to be a better year form me. Keep reading for my goals I want to accomplish for 2018.
