Mental illness can be the biggest deceiver of all time.

It can rob you of your confidence, and engulf you in self doubt, or even worse, self loathing, but we’re here to tell you, you can take back that power, that control.

You may need to reach out for help from loved ones, health professionals, and even dig down deep within yourself.

*side note*
There is NO shame in asking for help. It can be the most difficult task and take the most bravery. Our biggest inspirations are those who have at some point had to ask for help themselves.

You may often feel like your fading, and losing yourself to your illness, but we’re here to tell you, you can shine again. You’re still in there somewhere.

No one alive is a finished, perfected human being, and that’s perfectly ok.

You may feel numb, empty, angry, lonely, scared, isolated, unworthy, but PLEASE do not give up. You can overcome these scary places.

You may not feel like you deserve to, but I promise you that’s a lie. I promise you that you deserve health and happiness as much as anyone else.

Please stop punishing yourself for the things you cannot change, and shift your focus to what you can.

You may never be fully free from the clutches of mental illness, but you can lead a life fully lived whilst managing it. You will fall, you will falter, but you can prosper.

Whatever you’re dealing with, whatever situation, you can make it work and finds ways to cope
