Reading Time: 3 minutes As I blew off the twenty one candles, I only had one wish; that I build a relationship with myself and know myself better. Seeing my close friends happy and sober just made me so happy. Even when they left I only had but a smile on my face. Not because everyone was drunk and oblivious of my birthday, but because I filled a void that I was in me for a long time. Not only did I release the pressure from my friends and family, but I also found an inner peace. I met myself and actually liked who I saw in the mirror that night as I went to bed.
