Slaying Dragons

Let’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.

The behaviours that emerge from mental illnesses can seem like Character defects and failings instead of what they are, symptoms.
Don’t ever stop fighting for wellness.
It’s worth it.
