So much of grief is learning how to integrate our shadow selves into the rest of us.
I'm hoping the person who needs this will read it.
Some people have the impression that once a mentally ill person seeks out help, it's only a matter of time before things get better. But that's not always true.
Hi, do you feel like garbage? I have some suggestions for you.
You will know what it's like to be in awe of yourself, startled but not afraid.
Being happy makes me a little crazy. And if you've ever thought you were the only one, I assure you – it's actually a really common thing.
Even when depression keeps me in bed. Even when anxiety has me bailing at the last second. Please don't give up on me.
Your mental health is more important than ever, and if there were ever a time to be vigilant about keeping all your marbles in the jar, it's now.
The unspoken truth: There is a particular kind of agony that comes with the realization that you could be good in every way, and mental illness will still chew you up and spit you back out.
Nothing was actually wrong. I wouldn't have changed anything about my life – just how I felt.
