Having a Mental Illness is absolutely terrifying. You’re fighting a constant battle in your mind every day. Feelings of loneliness, rejection, self-doubt, shame…that’s only the tip of the iceberg. And many people around you, including your closest friends and family, probably don’t really understand what you’re going through. I’m here to tell you that everything is going to be okay. You are stronger than most people out there. You got this. You are not alone. I believe in you. Now it’s time to start believing in yourself. You are not the byproduct of your illness. You have the power to control this chapter in your life. Remember that. One chapter in the entire book of your life. So keep on going, because you’re going to have one hell of a story to tell.
