Spread awareness — World Mental Health Day
When you’re suffering from mental illness it’s hard to look past the illness and ask for help. Because you have this feeling of being stuck and of feeling like you’re all alone. It is something that is pretty hard to go through, especially when you do it on your own. But you’re not alone. I know it feels like it and I know that it can be hard to reach out to others but you need to open up to at least one person! It can be anyone, your friends, your family, your teacher, your therapist, your God etc… You need to find the strength to talk about it. You also need to understand yourself and where all these feelings are coming from.
I’ve got a pretty good understanding of myself and I think that that’s why I’m managing to go through life so well. I know when something’s wrong with me and I know how to deal with the problem at hand. But that’s just my own experience. Everybody’s different and the way that I manage to deal with my anxiety or depression might not be the same for everybody else.
Just know that you’re not alone. And that there’s always going to be a light at the end of the tunnel. I know that because I’ve doubted that light countless of times. I’ve doubted its existence and I’ve been depressed about never ever seeing that light ever in my whole entire life. But then I realized that that light was not going to just be there and just appear out of nowhere. That light, I had to create. I create that light at the end of the tunnel. I AM that light at the end of the tunnel! And by that I mean that I am the hope that I’ve been looking for. I am the amazing person that I’ve been waiting for so long to save me. I am everything that I’ve been dreaming about. I just needed to realize that.
I just needed to realize that I was more than what I’ve made myself to be. I am more than what people thought of me. I am more than what people thought I’d become. I am more than what people see.
I AM a strong beaming burst of light.
Whatever you’re going through, I know that you’ll get through it! Because you too are a strong beaming burst of light! You just have to realize that!
Everything’s going to be alright!
I wish you all the best in life! We will all do just great if we just let ourselves do that!
