Thank you. For everything you do as a project. I've been on both sides, having battled depression and anxiety myself and now working with people who suffer from poor mental health (I hate the terminology but I'm referring to schizophrenia, depression, anxiety, BPD, general dissociation etc. Many have learning disabilities and have suffered horrific abuse due to their vulnerability) I guess it can be somewhat triggering for me, but that last bit of advice was what I needed for now. So thank you.
I’m glad you feel a little bit better. Honestly, if I would really give my two cents on this,
what we all really need to do is support one another in recovery and even in our normal everyday lives. Let’s all be gracious and kind with our words and actions. Be slow to anger and analyze things before we speak or act. Don’t let negative emotions control our rationale.
I know, it’s easy to say these things, but if you think about it, if we just try to at least practice these things, there’d be a lot less broken hearts and broken souls. Words can cut deeper into a human soul than any other double edged weapon.
I admire you. I really do. I’m not saying this to patronize you or anything, and I would prefer if I can say this to your face. You are a wonderful, brave, young person. You have so much more to accomplish in your life, and what better way to start than to help others who have suffered from mental/psychological illnesses just like you.
Keep pushing through, alright? Hold on to the hope that we can win these internal battles. And keep supporting others. And most importantly, don’t be afraid to ask fro help if you need any. We’re not supposed to walk through life alone, neither are we required to stay perfect and strong for others all the time.
I’m proud of you.
