Yesterday was world mental health day and i’ve been writing and rewriting something to say about my experience with my mental health. Its hard to find words to express complicated feelings correctly. And its hard to write as if i fully understand someone else’s complicated feelings, or to write as if what i’m saying over an app on a phone can fully help. But i did just want to write this and put it out there.
To the people out there that wake up every day and have to actively push themselves to go make the most of the day. Who some days wake up and feel so mentally cloudy it doesn’t seem worth it to get out from under the covers, but still do. Who feel that breathless feeling of anxiety in their chest that makes you want to curl into a ball, but keep on moving. To the people who get swings of motivation and find the strength to push themselves to go with it, even though they know that feeling might not be there tomorrow. To each and every person that needs that extra push, and finds the strength to give it to themselves. And to all the people who feel like they can’t right now, who feel engulfed in darkness. I promise you you can push through the clouds. They might not disappear but you can find power over them. Some day you’ll find those same clouds beautiful. I’m proud of you. I’m with you. I hear you. I see you. I feel you. I love you.
