I need to remind myself of this every day. I have anxiety and depression and mild ADHD. I struggle daily with my mental illness and my mental health. There are days where I'd rather stay in bed and cry or there are days where My heart races because I have to talk to someone. I even have unpacked boxes in my apartment because my anxiety won't let me start unpacking them. I hate it, but it's part of who I am. I, personally, take medication for my anxiety. I'm not ashamed of my mental illness and I want everyone to know that you don't have to be ashamed of your mental health issues. You're not a failure. #Repost @bodyposipanda (@get_repost)
Reminder for anyone struggling with their mental health right now (including myself): YOU ARE NOT A FAILURE.
Your anxiety doesn't make you worthless.
Your depression doesn't make you a burden.
Your eating disorder doesn't make you unlovable.
Your PTSD doesn't make you inadequate.
Your bipolar disorder doesn't make you a horrible person.
Your borderline personality disorder doesn't make you a disappointment.
Your OCD doesn't make your value decrease.
WHATEVER MENTAL ILLNESS YOU'RE STRUGGLING WITH RIGHT NOW DOESN'T MAKE YOU A FAILURE. Repeat that to yourself until you believe it. You are so much more than one part of your mental health, and I'm really glad that you're here in the world. 💜💚💙🌈🌞
