This was the hardest four months of my entire life. • There were times I wasn’t sure I would make it. • At one point, I wrote a note to myself: “there is a future version of you who is proud you were strong enough.” That future me is now present me. • I am relieved that I made it through my first semester. I’m proud of myself for fighting so... fucking... hard. Against uncertainty. Against loneliness. Against my own head, every single day. I’m proud of myself for not giving up. I’m proud of myself for reaching out and getting help. • This is to remind me. Because the fight is not over yet, but now I know I can make it. • @thewarriorcollective@_kellyu#mentalhealth#imadeit#isurvived#nevergiveup#alwayskeepfighting#warrior#graduateschool#graduatestudent#firstsemester

I know you're out there. I know you're scared, you've been hurt, you're facing tough decisions, and you feel alone. Maybe the shame of what you've done or what was done to you is too much for your heart to bear. Tonight I want you to know that I see you. You matter. You are important. I value you. I can see through the labels you give yourself that keep you walking along the edge of this life. I want you to know that you can make it to the sunrise. The world needs you here.
