"And once the storm is over, you won't remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about." - Haruki Murakami

Mental health post for anyone struggling right now:
Self love is more important than you can ever imagine, when you’re alone crying and shaking and wishing it would end, you’re ultimately the one who will need to find the strength to carry on.
Its ok to break down and cry until your eyes get puffy but afterwards you just got to pick yourself up. The hardest lesson you will ever learn will be to love yourself. But you can do it. There will always be days when you hate yourself. I know it’s hard to love yourself, but sometimes it’s okay to be a little selfish with your love. Some days will be beautiful. Live for those days. Live for the days when the sun shines on your soul and the smile on your face isn’t forced. Live for the days when you don’t give a fuck what anyone thinks because your scars are a part of your story and you don’t need someone else’s approval to wear them with pride. When you begin to feel worthless, remember you are made from stars. You are made of elements that are thousands of years old, elements that make up every atom of your being.
Learn how to love life once again. Go buy a coffee and a burger.
Go be yourself, laugh until it hurts.
Turn off your phone for a whole day, and don’t think about who is or isn’t messaging you. Tell people you love them, call don’t text. Pick some flowers, make them into a crown or put them in a vase. Read a book.
Please travel. Travel as much as you can. Travel with friends or by yourself. Meet strangers, make them companions, friends, lovers.
Be proud of everything you have achieved, be excited for everything that is yet to come. Most importantly, be happy, please be happy.

Postpartum psychosis: part 2.
It wasn’t a great week. I tried to write from the beginning but a lot was brought back up. And, although things are a hundred million times better now I can’t let myself feel those ways again. Maybe I’m not ready to talk yet but that’s okay. I’m so beyond grateful for everything and everyone beautiful in my life, one day I will make sense of everything that wasn’t beautiful 🥀

Can’t see the stars, but we’re reaching
Trying to get through the dark on a feeling
Lost our gravity, now we’re weightless
But I know in my heart we can take this
Shaking off the dust, now we know what we’re made of ✨ - @illeniummusic (most beautiful song! ☺️) .
