Letâ€™s get real for a moment guys – this poem has an incredibly important message. When someone is experiencing untreated ptsd, depression, anxiety or any mental illness for a long period of time it can become your new norm. When these things are all you know you start to accept them and see them as a part of you. The behaviours that emerge from mental illnesses can seem like Character defects and failings instead of what they are, symptoms.
Donâ€™t ever stop fighting for wellness.
Itâ€™s worth it.

“Love is what we are born with, fear is what we are taught here.”

Some days acceptance is harder then others. I am prone to fighting and fretting instead of releasing and accepting – Its never to late to surrender again.
I write to remind,
myself and anyone else who needs to hear this today, too.

Lets get real for a minute –
Shatter the expectations – and who’s expectations?
Love yourself so loudly that it drowns out all the unhealthy messages that we encounter on a daily basis.
YOU ARE ENOUGH, just the way you are.
One day I will believe this too, sometimes I already do.
