Your mental illness doesn’t have to completely destroy the wonderful experience of your own being. There is help out there. Different medications and therapies that you can try to better manage your self not just in a way that you are acceptable to society but in a way that you are also acceptable to yourself.
Your hope is out there. And I promise that everything will be okay because everything eventually has to be.
i. explode with who are you. don’t hold back. you are your own kind of incredible, and those who are right for you will never want you to suppress that.
ii. when your self-confidence is tumbling downhill, be kind. be kind to others, be kind to the world around you, and most importantly, be kind to yourself.
iii. forget beautiful. focus on strength and love. your appearance does not mandate your worth and taking away its power will set you free.
