No, the night doesn’t change that fast.
It took hard work.
Loads of hard work.
It took missing out on family engagements.
Loads of them.
It took not being able to form meaningful friendships.
It took a ton of therapy sessions.
It took away the kid in you.
It took countless tears on the bathroom floor.
It took questioning yourself more than you deserved to.
And it took one last trial after which you were about to give up.
No, the night did not change so fast.
It takes a decade for change to happen overnight.
