Mental illness IS real!! It is NOT as simple as a “chemical imbalance” and the simple-minded people that believe that, are the ones causing the stigma! So STOP IT!!! Learn more.
Please realize how likely it is that someone you know & love is suffering from one of the many mental illnesses there are. Admit that people don’t always have control over the way their mind works. Fighting a mental illness is an uphill battle for the ones suffering, as well as those who try to be the support system. But together, it is a much easier fight than it can seem alone. So if you are the support, just don’t ever give up on them. If you are the one feeling like you will never win this, keep trying anyway. I promise there is someone who loves you & would do anything to help you through this. Don’t hide this struggle, don’t face it alone because you don’t have to. Reach out to someone you trust. If you don’t trust people close to you there are still avenues to take that give you the support & help that you need. Try a stranger that is your peer, sometimes it’s easier to open up to someone who knows nothing about you to begin with.
**Even here on Tumblr there are plenty of other people going through very similar things. I myself have found some peace, being able to express things freely. Also, just seeing that there are others who are just like me. That I am NOT alone. Many people have open ask boxes and take the time to reach out to their followers, so they know someone does care!**
If you need someone to talk to, but don’t know where to start, feel free to start with me
I’m 27 today. I have enjoyed it, even as balmy & drizzly as it’s been.
Calm & happy.
Just a quiet day/evening so far. Only a few friends & fam over tonight/tomorrow.
More Birthday celebrations out in town most likely this weekend.
Going to Province Town (P-Town to the locals) for the first time since I was a little girl. My boyfriend is on vacation so we took off to Cape Cod with a friend of ours. He used to live around here, so he’s going to bring us to some cool locations!
Off we goooo!!!! Byyye!

too often true
very strange time
I drew this last night for someone I love. (it’s paint marker, so it’s staying strong!) I just want them to know I am here for them. I hope they truly understand how important they are, to so many people.. even when it doesn’t seem like it at all. I really wish for them to find peace with the situation that is holding them back from being the amazing shining light that those around them see hiding just under the surface, behind the smile that’s hiding the pain. I need them to know they ARE loved, that the things they dream will come true in due time, & to enjoy the little things in life now, to keep their head up because there really is so much beauty in the sky [& all around you]
