I have been absent these past few months from this blog and I feel awful about it.
This semester in college and my other commitments have gotten the best of me
I’m afraid. Quite honestly, I enjoy reading so many of your posts and stories and
hope that I can also inspire that same feeling for others. So I promise to have a
post-up next week and look forward to getting back on the platform and being
a part of all of your lives (that of which you choose to share here).
I have accomplished so much these past few months that it’s so surreal.
When I think back to who I was, and what I believed during my heavily
depressive times, I never would have imagined being in the position
I am in today.
Although things are not perfect and the battles are almost never-ending,
for the first time, I am starting to develop a small sense of hope. I know
this journey isn’t easy, and I only hope that for others going through a
please take care. You do not deserve to go through any of it alone.
Although it may not feel like others care about
you, or that you could ever be good enough, I know that there is
a part of you that hopes and wishes for things to
be different, for you to feel different. Please hold on
to that feeling, no matter how painful, hold on to it.
You deserve to feel okay, and I encourage you to take the necessary steps
towards being okay. Reach out to a family member or friend, let out your
frustrations and pain through some form of a recreational activity, pour
out your secrets, fears, and worries into words on a page or screen so
that you no longer have to carry the weight alone.
Until then, take care.

I would like to share a few resources below that may be beneficial.
