Days like today make me relate to this bowl. My battle with anxiety makes me feel small, and when it surfaces I feel that parts of me are being cut away. This post is a reminder to myself that even though anxiety and depression affect me, in the end I will make it through the fire, and I’ll be stronger and more beautiful than ever before. If you are battling anxiety and depression, or any mental health issue I encourage you to reach out, you’re certainly not alone. Be vulnerable, save this post, and months later when you stumble on it again, be reminded that you are alive. If you feel that you or someone else is in danger of hurting themselves or others, please call the Suicide Hotline 1-800-273-8255. I’m a simple man, but I’m always here if you need someone to listen. Stay humble.
