To anyone out there suffering in silence being told your mental illness isn’t real, I stand with you and for you; this message is not just for you but for the people of world choosing to shame and disregard you....
Depression, is real.
Anxiety, is real.
Whatever you’re feeling, is real and is justified.
You are human, and some humans struggle more than others with their mental health.
Some people don’t have normal functioning hormone regulation.
Some people can’t explain why they feel suicidal or scared all of a sudden or happy one minute and sad the next.
Some people can’t explain why they want to hide and shy away from what others would describe as ‘no big deal’.
Some people have no idea why they feel the way they do, it just takes over.
Maybe that’s you.
Maybe you understand this or know what I’m talking about.
Maybe you are silently holding yourself high trying to love yourself deeply in a world full of people trending about why your emotions, your disorder, your illness, your struggles ‘are made up’ or ‘are within your control’ or ‘are not real’.
You are loved and understood by many, don’t forget that what you are going through IS real.
And more importantly, it is TREATABLE and you are STRONG for seeking help, getting treated, or talking about what you are going through.
You can rise up, you can make it through, you can and will come out on top. It’s possible, it’s within reach.
And in the meantime, myself, and many others who understand this, are here for YOU and your journey.
Lots of love,

P.S. this is not to say that you can’t raise your vibration, choose to embody and radiate positivity, find peace and healing, put a smile on, or shift your energy;
This is simply me taking a stand and saying these mental illnesses and disorders are VERY real and they cause people, even myself, lots of pain, struggle, heartache, confusion, trauma, and troubles which impact not only that person but the people they are surrounded by.
Please share this if you agree so others can hear this and feel supported ❤️
