To anyone who’s struggling in silence today,
I want you to know I’m so proud of you.
I’m proud of you for fighting monsters no one else can see, often times with a smile on your face. I’m proud of you for taking each breath, because carrying the weight of suicidal thoughts and mental illness is not an easy feat. I’m proud of you for being part of this community — proof that although we may be struggling, we still have the capacity to come together and support others who may be in pain.
If you’re struggling in silence today, we see you.
I hope you know that it’s okay.
It’s okay to feel that way from time to time.
You don’t have to burden yourself with the guilt or the shame of feeling that way.
I know feeling that way feels heavy on your heart. I know it seems it’s never going to stop. I know you think you’re alone.
Let’s support each other ❤️
