I met with a psychologist twice in 2016.
We may not even realize we’re depressed when we’re depressed.
I’ve experienced some extreme lows in my life. I may have hit rock bottom.
When we’re suffering, hurting, and feeling pain, address it. Accept it. Don’t fight it.
Ask for help. There are people out there who will try to help us.
Vulnerability is a strength. It will help us overcome whatever we’re going through.
I still get depressed, but I’ve come a long way.
I’ve dedicated the past few years of my life to working on myself.
I am a priority. My life is a priority. My mental health is a priority.
I make time for myself daily, work on myself daily, and help myself daily.
I see the light. I won’t go back.
If you’re feeling down and depressed, you can find peace and happiness. We don’t have to suffer.
I was embarrassed to admit what I was going through and what I was feeling. I felt shame. I felt weak. I was in denial.
I’m better and stronger for the adversity I’ve faced and what I’ve overcome.
If I can get through some of the things I’ve gone through, I’m confident I can get through anything. You can do the same.
Eliminate the stigma associated with mental health.
I’m proud of my struggles. I survived. I’ll advocate for mental health until the day I die. And I’ll advocate for you.
