Time for a #mentalhealthmonday post!
Do you see our necklace charms in this photo?
These are our Swole Sister necklaces, made by @badbadjewelry.
Jessica bought these for the two of us to commemorate our bond of using Fitness to battle our anxiety and depression... That beauty got down on one knee, in public, with my charm in a small box in her hand. She didn’t care what any of the people around us thought, and knew it would make me smile. It did.
I nearly cried, it was so thoughtful.
SHE was so thoughtful.
The half of a broken heart that she handed me represented STRENTGH, and not just in the gym.
But she didn’t always see her strength. And I truly wish she had... 💔
Now I wear her half of the broken heart, forever. @markofmarked tattooed her charm with a beautiful water color accent for me, and I absolutely love it... I wish she could see it!
I didn’t know that Jessica was struggling and feeling weak again... she didn’t tell me. In fact, in our last conversation just days before she left, she told me she was doing better and working out again.
Now I’ve spent several months, wishing I had known...
The people who love and need you can’t help you, if they don’t know that you need help. So I’m posting a simple reminder today, for anyone who might need it: You are not alone. Someone WILL listen, and WANTS to help. Don’t ignore your mental health needs 💕 It’s going to be ok.
