I posted this on Instagram but I wanted to share the project I've been working on!

Depression and Anxiety is a touchy subject. It was hard for me to be able to start telling people about it, but since I have, I've gotten so much support, and I've helped many people. My own family couldn't fathom the fact that I had been struggling all this time because I am so good at putting on a happy face. It is hard to know when someone may be going through these hard times because we learn to pretend. That is why I am speaking up! It's time to start acknowledging the fact that anxiety and depression happen to 1 in every 8 people. It's time to stop pretending. It's time to start telling people when we are struggling because if we start talking more about it, and receiving the help and support we need and deserve, imagine the lives that could be saved! I hope you all spread this message because it is an important one. Let's start speaking up about anxiety and depression. Let's save some lives.

  • Amen!

  • It sounds very empowering. Good for you for being confident and sharing your story. I think that is what people what to hear. Often we have thoughts and feelings that we hide because we feel like we're crazy. It is so important to know that we are not alone.

  • This is so important! It is often hard to admit our illness to others but it needs to be brought to the forefront so that people can gain an understanding. Hopefully this will bring about more support and treatment.
