In Honor Of…

In honor of World Mental Health Day, I wanted to share this, which was the second public post about what I’ve been working through.

Today has been been kind of tough, ironically. I hope that this is an encouragement to you and a reminder that you’re not alone and so very loved.

I want to hug you and beg you to remember how much you matter.

How much people love you.

That you’re not a burden or a liability.

To be kind and gentle to yourself.

Rest. Breathe.

You’re going to get through this.

Please keep fighting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Think of seeds in the soil.

They push and fight and grow slowly to see the sunlight.

They feel pressed in at every side, scrapes, an enormous weight on top and there’s no light.

They break through the surface but then the rain comes and beats at every side.

But, friends. The sun does come out and it blossoms. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

You will too.
