As I've already wrote that I want to go to schools or whatever and talk about mental illness, I think I'd love to talk to young people and tell them how it's okay to struggle and it is okay to ask for help.
Now let's get to the main post..
There's things I always tell people who don't understand my anxiety -
- It isn't just going to go away
- I can't just turn it off
- Don't tell me you know I feel
- Your bad day isn't the same as my bad days
- Do not ever tell me to just get over it
- Don't tell me it's normal because it isn't
I've always hated telling people what's on my mind because if I struggle to understand myself then how are YOU going to understand me and how I'm feeling? My outlets are writing and drawing, but whenever I draw, I draw how I feel so I'll sketch skulls and super eery stuff like that.
Anybody out there that's struggling I want you to know, that it's okay. You don't deserve this but it's okay to admit you're struggling, if you've relapsed with your eating disorder, it's okay because you've shown that you were strong enough to beat it before. This doesn't define who you are as a person, you always gotta have a little rain to get a little sunshine and that's something I honestly believe.
