To encourage you to keep going.
To remind you to be strong.

Published on June 30, 2015 in Picture Quotes, Quote of the Day

And so this post is for you. For those whose suffering feels unnoticed. For those people who feel quietly stuck inside their mind. For those that feel hopeless. For those whose cries for help are mislabelled or misunderstood as cries for attention or flaws in their being. For the people who feel too tired to continue on. For people who struggle with depression and for people who don’t. For people who are having a bad day, a bad season, or a rough stretch of life. And for those people who don’t understand the illness but are willing to try. It’s okay – whatever you need, wherever you are, however long it takes – it’s okay. There is still time. To ask for help. To grow. To heal. To recover. There is still time for the sunshine to begin to seep through the cracks. For a flower to grow straight from your heart. ~Jessica Jensen

    I am bipolar. Take it from me those statements are so true. Mental illness is misunderstood. We suffer greatly. Our worlds are turned upside down. We feel scared, lonely, anguish, hopelessness, and we are in dark places you could never imagine. People need to educate themselves on mental illness. That is the only way it will ever be understood by those not dealing with it or have someone they know with it. Even educating one doesn’t really get to the heart of it. Know one will truly know how mental illness changes you and your life forever. Please take the time to read an article or two about bipolar disorder and maybe that may give you some insight on one type of mental illness. Educate, don’t judge us. We didn’t ask for this disease and we will live with it the rest of our lives.
