6 years ago I was told I'd always have pounding chronic migraines when I did physical activity. 6 years ago I was homeschooled and stayed in bed most of the day. 6 years ago I used sleep to escape my mental health. 4 years ago I was diagnosed with interstitial cystitis (incurable chronic bladder condition) and IBS. 6 years ago I began battling extreme anxiety and mental health. And yet looking back now.. I wouldn't change a damn thing. I've hit rock bottom, and hell I'll probably hit rock bottom again, but this time I'll know that I can take whatever life throws at me. Im still working on myself everyday, and my mental and physical health isn't perfect, but I wouldn't be half the person I am today without my struggles. Whatever you're going through, from big things to small things, know that diamonds are made under pressure 💍 even when it may seem like there isn't any light at the end of the tunnel.. keep pushing. This is where life is testing you to build or break.
