A few hours ago, while looking through my old pinterest boards, I stumbled upon a board titled ‘quotes’. I went all the way to the bottom and read some of the quotes that I pinned. It was absolutely astonishing to see what my mind used to be like. I was in such a dark, dark place. All of the quotes would be so sad, I could never have pictured myself to feel such a way. I would pin quotes about trust issues, broken heart, being depressed. I shocked myself, maybe even shed a few tears (though ill never admit it). It made me realize how fragile I used to be, how the world put me down so much I decided to stay there in silence. Mental health month may be over, but the struggle is not. What I went through and what plenty others are going through is not meant to be taken lightly. I share my story in hopes that even just one person will see it and get hope. Hope. One word was all it would have taken for me to turn my life around back then. I am extremely grateful to be here. I am extremely grateful to say that I will never pin another quote like the ones I saw ever again. Even in the darkest of days I will still search for the light. I hope you do the same. Be proud to live another day, to see another sunrise, because I sure am.
