This is the only picture in my camera roll from last month.
On February 19th, I almost lost my life to an overdose. The weight of my depression overtook my rational thinking. However, I’ve been blessed with the gift of another day, and I’ve decided to start doing things differently. I am done pretending I don’t struggle. I am done hiding my mental illness for fear of what others may think. I am done believing that my struggle makes me a ‘bad’ Christian. I have chronic depression. I have debilitating anxiety. Sometimes I have a pain that no one can see, but that does not mean it’s not real. It’s a part of me. But I refuse to let it define me. I refuse to let it keep me living in fear. I have hope. I have love. I have grace. I have life.

I wrote this song feeling kind of low but also lost at who I am and this was the result.
So this is my return back onto this account with an actual theme and all that. I hope you like it :)
The strongest actions for a woman is to love herself, be herself + shine amongst those who never believed she could. ✨ Thankful for this journey I’m on. Thankful for my beautiful and gifted psychologist who’s reminding me that I am human, I’ve made mistakes but that I deserve to give myself so much self love + self compassion even when I want to continue beating on myself.
