Sometimes Life Can Be Hard AF

This Crazy Thing Called Life Mental Health Is Health

Real life isn’t always the silly selfies and picture perfect life you see online. Real life can be hard; real life can be exhausting.

Social media offers only a glimpse into our lives. We choose what we want to share, and what we don’t.

Personally – I always try to be open, sharing the good and the bad.

What you don’t always see though, are the days that I cannot leave my bed; the days where my depression tightens the hold it has on me and I feel so utterly alone and stuck.

What you don’t see are the days where I have full-blown panic attacks; where it feels as though the walls are closing in on me and I can’t breathe, nor see through the overflowing tears.

What you don’t see are the times where my anxiety is so crippling that I’m left questioning myself, my worth, my everything – all because the boogeyman in my head is telling me over and over how unworthy and useless I am.

What I want you to see though is that even through all of this – happiness is possible, you just have to choose to fight for it…to fight for yourself.

…and sometimes we all need that reminder, even me.
