it's okay to not be okay. ✨ i hope that if you're hurting, you have someone to turn to. i hope that if you're in need of professional help, you have access to a provider. reaching out is an act of bravery, no matter how big your fear. you don't have to do all of this alone. if not for the past 3.5 years of regular therapy and medication i wouldn't be here. i am grateful every day for modern medicine and psychology. plenty of days still feel heavy and hard, but i know i can make it through because i've done it before. if you've *ever* thought about therapy PLEASE give it a try. if you're not sure who/how to call, reach out (to me, even. i'll try to help however i can). and parents, be mindful of your children's needs. they don't need to have experienced trauma to benefit from therapy; simply giving your child the gift of coping mechanisms or a safe sounding board will change their life, i promise. ✨✨ don't shrug off your mental health, whatever you do. your brain leads your body. and please, above all else, remember that you are capable, courageous, and important. the world would not be the same without you in it. #worldmentalhealthday #yougettherapy #andyougettherapy #EVERYBODYGETSTHERAPY!
