happy #worldmentalhealthday. i am proud to say i’ve been an advocate for mental health since i was a child. i’m proud to say i’ve been in therapy for 23 years. i’m proud to say i put my recovery first in my life and i truly believe i wouldn’t be here without the work i’ve done. but most of all i’m proud to say i’m finally the person i’ve always wanted to be. everyday isn’t perfect and so many moments seem unbearable still, but i’ve learned how temporary the darkness is. i’ve learned what to do when i’m falling. i’ve learned where to put my faith. i’ve learned how to keep trying. but i had to truly LEARN this. i had to do the work. so much truth telling, so much wound finding, so much writing and EMDR and trauma therapy and step work, fellowship and most of all faith. faith i could heal, faith in the process, and faith in myself. now, i keep going! the work doesn’t end or i end. so, if you suffer from any kind of mental illness please know you’re not alone and please don’t give up on yourself. please open up and be honest with someone and do the work. lean into the discomfort and make more room for your authenticity and your true self. i genuinely believe all of this will save your life like it continues to save mine ❤️
