Mental Health is a disease that’s taking control of many innocent souls.
It slowly drowns it’s victim in pain and unwanted fears.
It divides itself into many categories such as anxiety, depression, ptsd, etc.
The ways to cope with it or to cure it, is often deadly.
Many don’t find hope in themselves or in getting better.
Many failed therapy sessions lead to the unthinkable.
How simple household items can become the cure to someone’s pain
It may be a simple jump rope that takes the innocent.
It may be the gun that’s locked up, yet you know where the key lays.
Its not glamorous, as the movies try making it seem.
It’s not just getting scared to answer a phone.
It’s being afraid to leave your bed most days.
It’s not being able to shower and take care of yourself because you can’t get the motivation to get out of bed.
It’s the dishes in the sink that pile a mile high because you’re too tired to do it.
It’s having break downs over the mile high dishes, yet still not being able to get yourself to do them.
It’s a battle between you and your mind and on most days, you lose.
It’s drowning your pains with alcohol and drugs.
It’s starving yourself when you feel the slightest bit bloated.
It’s binging everything in sight because you can’t control yourself.
It’s feeling completely alone while you’re in the middle of a crowded room.
It’s being drawn into a flashback from hearing and seeing things that trigger you.
It’s never knowing when the next attack will strike.
It’s not knowing when or if it’ll get better.
Some days you’ll wake up completely okay
Other days you’ll wish you never woke up.
It’s a process that takes time to get under control.
Some people take medication to keep things balanced and to help the process faster.
It’s okay to not be okay.
Wanna know why?
Everyone has a battle that they’re facing.
Some of us are able to walk out into the world and smile, acting as though everything is okay.
Some of us can’t walk out into the world at all.
In case you needed a sign that things would get better and that you should have hope, this is it.
You are absolutely beautiful.
You are absolutely handsome.
You’re absolutely human, which makes you imperfectly perfect.
It’s okay to hit rock bottom.
What’s not okay is to give up because of hitting rock bottom.
We’ve all been there, and if you haven’t, you will.
Once you hit rock bottom, you might take some time to sit there. To look back at how you got there.
Then, you make a change.
It’s hard getting better when you don’t accept the fact that you’re at fault or that you’re flawed.
It’s okay to not always be right.
Take your mistakes and learn the lesson. Take that lesson and learn how to grow from it.
Once you know your faults and you learn from it, you’ll grow and prosper.
Everyone is a good person until you make people believe you’re not.
But even then, you can prove that you’re a good person once again.
Let life throw you down.
Let life teach you lessons, whether they’re extremely hard or just a little bump.
Know your worth.
It’s okay to feel worthless because we all do at some point.
However, remember that you’re not.
Place your hand on your heart. You feel that? That’s purpose.
Be the light in someone else’s darkness.
Grow with one another and learn along the way.
Some of us may have thorns, don’t let the rose fool you.
Keep your head high and your expectations low.
Together we can outshine the darkness.
There are other ways out of mental health.
Remember that suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
With time, you’ll feel it and believe it too.
It may not be today
It may not be tomorrow
But honey, your time will come.
This too, shall pass.
