To anyone who has a mental illness this post is for you-to remind you that you are NOT your illness.
You are not the label or labels they gave you when you were diagnosed.
You are not “crazy”, “stupid”, insignificant, or “dangerous”.
You are not undeserving of love and you are not less than.
You are not what the negative voices in your head or the voices of what others may say you are.
You ARE a fighter and you are strong.
You are brave.
You face your inner demons, no matter how exhausting it can be. And you get up the next day, and do it all again.
You are a work in progress all the while being a masterpiece of your own.
You are unafraid of facing your problems, well maybe you are afraid, but you go ahead and face them anyways.
YOU are one bad ass mother-fucker and don’t let anyone tell you any different.
