Going through some of the darkest parts of my life saved me in a sense. Some of the things I went through that appeared incredibly destructive were actually a necessary part of processing something and eventually allowed me to move forward. Following that travel helped me massively. The ability to move on and start fresh, give myself another chance somewhere else. I think meeting my girlfriend has also played a massive part in creating a sense of security, calmness and confidence that prevents me falling back into a dark place.
