#TBT to Issue 8 - "I Chose to Stay - A Journey Through Recovery"⠀
The floor is cold. I don’t even know how long I’ve been lying here. Hours, probably. I have a stomachache and my head is pounding. I try to lift myself up off of the bathroom floor, but as soon as I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror, I break down in tears. The girl in the mirror wasn’t who I wanted to be and her life wasn’t one I wanted to have. Thoughts race through my mind, convincing me to end everything. The pill bottles in the medicine cabinet are tempting my irrational behavior. I'm scared to death I've completely lost my mind. Things have been hard and my thoughts are racing. I can’t slow them down or make them stop. I stood there, facing the mirror. Tears smeared across my face and without hesitation, I took comfort in a razor. - @youmeandleo ⠀

One of the young ladies in this picture has never been to the beach in here 22 years of life. Thanks to the job I have at VZW I am able to afford a small place at Sunset Beach. This allowed these ladies to go and stay rent free. I was able to see her light up in pure amazement at the ocean and sand! She cried and thanked me! This is why I work! #peoplematter#wematter#umatter
José María lleva quince años en Madrid, pero se siente sevillano por todos lados.
Disfruta de los rayos de sol, la buena compañía y una cerveza bien fría. Después de un día duro de trabajo se desahoga "sudando la camiseta", sea en el deporte que sea, aunque lo que más le ayuda a descargar tensiones, es una buena sesión de HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training). #madrid#digitalagency#peoplematter
