To anybody struggling with a mental illness, and you feel ashamed… I want you to know that you are not alone. You are not the only person struggling with a mental illness disorder and you can heal. You don’t have to feel guilty, constant embarrassment, constant worrying, or constant anxiety and so many more thoughts and feelings that sneaks up on you without any warning.
You have no reason to be ashamed because you’re not the only… you have no reason to be embarrassed because everyone needs help at sometime, or some point, in there life.
There’s different treatments that helps with those dark feelings, there’s therapy that’ll help you with healing, there’s medications that’ll help you feel like yourself again.
It’ll be astonishing. For you. I promise.
The negative stigma about people with mental illnesses, comes from people who have no knowledge about it. It comes from people who haven’t had not one experience. Know that those people… their words… is just plain ignorance. It makes no sense. The stigma sucks if you ask me.
Because they know nothing about your feelings, or what you’re going through. Only you know. I want you all to know you are somebody! You are strong! I want you all to know, not to ever give up! You can, and will win this fight of darkness.

You are the only one that knows how you feel. Only you know how it felt when you wanted to end it all. Just as well as I’m the only person that knows how those feelings and emotions of ‘depression’ feels myself… but it is okay.
It’s okay if you have bipolar disorder. It’s okay if you struggle with depression. It’s okay if you struggle with anxiety attacks. It’s okay!! As humans we tend to idolize happiness… whatever that even is. And in the progress, we ultimately demonize it’s perceived antithesis. We really do fear it. And most times as a result, we shy away or we fall silent. It’s so many ways it’s in our nature. To compete and to prove to other people that we’re doing well, happy and that we’re successful. It’s the illusion, growing by things like social media, the dilemma of the multidimensional gone flat.
Sometimes you feel weak because you can’t be “happy” in the way society demands. We sometimes hate ourself for our inability to just be ‘okay’ and we feel as if we’re weak.
But you are not.Continue reading “Mental Illness? Don’t Give Up Keep Fighting! And Keep Pushing… You Are Not Alone”
