People only reveal what they want you to know. I’m thankful for friends like Joey @poemsbyjcol who share pieces with me that they don’t post. The ones I need to hear to know I’m not alone. Not everyone puts their demons on display but some will share them with people who will appreciate the message they’re conveying. When I heard this I knew it was something amazing that needed to be relayed. I’m grateful he allowed me to share his heartfelt words on my page 🖤. • • • #josephcolombrita #depression #survivors #mentalhealth #mentalillness #invisibleillness #thedarkside #demons #light #hope #unseeableme #spokenword #writersofinstagram #writers #writerscommunity #writersofig #spilledink #poetsofinstagram #poetry #poetsociety #poetsofig #instapoet
Breaking the stigma of mental illness has come a long way. I have found instagram is a great platform for accomplishing that but in my daily life surrounded by people I know, I still find it hard to get them to understand bipolar, depression and anxiety. Without poetry or the book I wrote it’s difficult to come out and say I have an illness they can’t see. It’s so complicated I can’t explain it over a glass of wine or dinner. But I’m not going to give up and I’m so thankful for all the people that share their story even though it’s scary because with all of us speaking up, we will be heard 🖤💜. • • • #mentalhealth #hope #invisibleillness #bipolardepression #bipolar #depression #mentalillness #mentalillnessawareness #endthestigma #light #allies #writeitout #writers #writerscommunity #spilledink #poets #poetry #poetsofig #instapoet #unseeableme #betterdays #mentalhealthadvocate #writing
It’s terrifying when you know you’re up against an illness that changes the way the core of you would normally think and behave. Bipolar reminds me of AA in a way. It’s too big of a battle if you look further than today. We all have our struggles but no matter what they are, they are easier to overcome if we live in the here and now, and never lose sight of today’s victory 💜🖤. • • • #mentalhealth #bipolar #depression #anxiety #surviving #livingmybestlife #invisibleillness #light #hope #nevergivingup #icare #youmatter #unseeableme #hope #onedayatatime #lifeisprecious #writer #instawriter #spilledink #poetry #poetsofig #instapoet #justme #thedarkside #thelight #everyonematters
I don’t have everything figured out and I make sure I don’t pretend like I do for IG. My life is not perfect.. I have bipolar and deal with daily life like everyone else so it’s often a struggle for me but I know so many others out there are surviving the same fight, that’s why I write..that’s why I share my story. I could pretend to be someone else and write about things I know nothing about but then I would be just as fake as my words. I remember being at my lowest point hoping someone would simply say “you’re not alone” and mean it. Sadly that didn’t happen but I managed to stay strong, sometimes on my knees pleading but I kept fighting. I knew the day would come that I would get myself together enough to make it my daily goal to show others they are loved, they matter and they’re not alone. Today and every day that is my mission but in doing so I have finally heard those words I’ve been waiting for..that I’m not alone. We all have the ability to help each other and for those of you that reach out to people like me...you’ll forever be my heroes 🖤💜🖤💚. • • • #mentalhealth #mentalhealthadvocate #invisibleillness #depression #anxiety #ptsd #bipolar #unseeableme #allies #heroes #angels #hope #love #thankful #survivors #gooddays #selfie #keepingitreal #fridayvibes #writer #instawriter #poet #instapoet #youmatter #youarenotalone
I’m not trying to kill anyone’s early Valentine’s Day vibe but I’ve experienced quite a few and I guess it’s a cute day for some but I’m over flowers and gifts. I literally grow my own roses and buy my own things. I just want love that is shown everyday especially on the days I’m hard to love 🖤❤️. • • • #love #valentinesday #mytruth #keepingitreal #thinkingoutloud #needmore #illwait #foreverlove #bipolar #writer #instawriter #spilledink #poet #instapoet #poetry #poetsofig #poetsofinstagram #poems #poetrylovers #reallove #worththewait #unseeableme
I tried to do something a little different. Often it feels like depression is it’s own entity. Sometimes I have to treat it that way and act as if it’s not a part of me. It seems to help me make sense out of the pain and find any good that can come out of it. I have spoken to so many people who struggle with depression and I have found a lot of us use it to help others so our turmoil has a purpose. If we keep ourselves busy, creatively finding ways to spread hope and love we don’t have time to give up on ourselves or others. It’s important to remember we are all given struggles in life, no one is exempt...mental illness happens to be mine but no matter what we deal with we can choose to use that to make a difference. Sometimes darkness is the only way to expose our light 🖤💜. • • • #depression #darkness #light #love #hope #mentalillness #mentalhealth #bipolar #bipolardepression #youmatter #icare #mentalhealthadvocate #unseeableme #survivor #ally #writer #spilledink #instawriter #poet #igpoet #instapoet #poetry
It’s been exactly one year since I started this IG page. I was terrified to post my poetry about bipolar and share my demons with you. I remember having zero followers thinking how I am going to spread hope and get people to read me when all I knew how to write about was pain. I don’t have a lot of followers still that’s not why I write but every single one I gained was by being me and sticking to my plan to help others. I could of easily shared revealing selfies (btw I’m not judging those that do) or catering to what everybody wants me to be but it’s more important to me to break the stigma of mental illness and the only way to do that is by revealing the parts of me that aren’t pretty the parts that even scare me. My only goal was and always will be to let others know they’re not alone. Being real isn’t some simple hashtag and it certainly doesn’t wear a crown. Being real proves itself over time and I believe I’ve showed daily that my realness and genuine care for others from day one has never wavered. Thank you to everyone who has supported me from the beginning. It takes more than one person to make a difference.. I appreciate you 🖤💜. • • #keepingitreal #mentalhealth #bipolar #anxiety #depression #invisibleillness #unseeableme #survivor #mentalillness #everyonematters #icare #selfie #justme #writer #instawriter #poet #instapoet #hope #change #standingup #betterdays
One thing I’ve never really talked about on here is being a child of someone with a mental illness while having it. It’s something that can be passed down and it’s a very difficult thing to deal with for both sides. This topic is something I can’t condense into a poem or caption. I hope to find a way to speak more about this in the future but my dad text me back today (he also has bipolar) and I was reading the recent texts and I started crying. I need my dad even at my age and also he needs me but I know what it’s like not wanting to let your child know that you’re not ok. In my dads eyes he believes he needs to be strong always so he only speaks to me on his good days and for me that has been really hard. It may be why I rarely reach out. It makes me sad because so many people are suffering and they think no one will understand but damn I do...I so understand. It’s why I risk making a fool of myself most of the time talking about things few talk about. Anyway if you’re struggling please reach out people need you too 🖤💜🖤💜. • • • #mentalhealth #mentalillness #suicideawareness #bipolar #depression #anxiety #invisibleillness #unseeableme #hope #love #kindness #bethelight #reachout #icare #youmatter #ally #compassion #writersofinstagram #writerslife #writersofig #instawriter #spilledink #poetry #poetrycommunity #instapoet #justme #igpoetsociety
I post so much about the darkness of mental illness and letting others know they’re not alone I tend to forget to post about my good days, about days like today where I had a chance to play in the snow, hang out with my daughter and let all my burdens go. How worth it is to share my story when I notice my dm is flooded with others who relate and are brave enough to share theirs too. People that struggle with mental health issues are not just sad people that love when the sky falls. We live, laugh, love and when we are not doing very well at that we are fighting for our lives because of a chemical imbalance but that doesn’t make us less valuable than the rest of mankind. We are just people doing our best like everyone else. In our world we can look happy and contemplate suicide at the same time but I’m thankful for all of you who don’t judge and I’m extremely grateful for days like today where I’m genuinely glad to be alive💜🖤💜🖤. • • • #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #mentalhealth #bipolar #depression #invisibleillness #gooddays #thankful #hope #love #kindness #onedayatatime #nevergivingup #selfie #snowdays #everyonematters #writers #instawriters #poets #instapoets #mentalhealthadvocate #unseeableme #icare #youmatter
To this day I don’t believe anyone truly knows me. Maybe we don’t really know anyone. I think a lot of writers are judged and misunderstood especially ones who write about darkness. Maybe it’s because very few believe us. We look okay so how could we be in that much pain. Maybe they think we are seeking attention or maybe people just don’t care. I personally don’t know a single soul who writes about demons that doesn’t have at least one. It’s not something we share for fun or likes we are either helping others not feel alone or releasing them from our mind so we can survive. There are people walking among us that are searching for reasons to live most likely battling a mental illness. Maybe if we tried a little harder to get to know people and listened to what their not saying we could save some lives and make them feel loved now before it’s too late. I’m not suicidal currently so this is not a cry for help I just know how it feels to be alone. I don’t want anyone else to think they are 💜🖤. • • • #unseeableme #youarenotalone #youmatter #icare #iwriteforyou #invisibleillness #mentalillness #mentalhealth #bipolar #bpd #depression #suicideprevention #mentalhealthadvocate #survivor #ally #writer #instawriter #spilledink #poetry #poet #poetsofig #instapoet #mytruth #keepingitreal #justme
It’s difficult to lay our burdens on someone, there’s a fine line between complaining and asking for help when we need it. Through my journey with bipolar I have found that some things I can handle on my own and certain things it’s a must I reach out. If someone offers a shoulder to lean on it doesn’t necessarily mean it will be there for us when we need it but our heart will tell us who to trust and who is genuine. I may not be a lot of things but if someone is in distress that they didn’t cause needs me I will be there without question. I’m not a shoulder for drama to lean on but if you’re doing your best and it doesn’t feel like enough you can have both of my shoulders I guarantee you that 🖤💜. • • • #leanonme #ally #icare #youmatter #mentalhealth #mentalhealthadvocate #bipolar #bpd #depression #invisibleillness #everyonematters #writing #writersofinstagram #instawriters #spilledink #writerslife #poetsofinstagram #poetsofig #poetsociety #poetrylovers #poetry #poetrycommunity #instapoet #unseeableme
A little overwhelmed lately so I’m getting some posts in while I have time. Just incase you’re wondering...I truly do care about your journey, I may not comment on everything you post but I see you ..I’m reading and appreciating💜💚 • • It’s easy to kneel when you’re overwhelmed but it feels so good to stand tall despite the desire to fall. • • #iseeyou #youmatter #icare #ally #goodsoul #everyonematters #mentalhealthadvocate #goodvibes #betterdays #onelife #hope #love #writer #instawriter #poet #instapoet #healingvibes #selfie #bipolar #notashamed #survivor #justme #unseeableme

I contemplated on whether or not I should share this but I know I’m not the only one that has endured domestic violence. I write mostly about mental health but there are many parts to my life and this is one of them. I don’t want to come across weak because I definitely am not but I feel that sharing this shows that no matter what horrifying things we go through we can choose to move on from it and make a better life. I know for me it will be hard to love someone again but I know it’s possible I just won’t put up with any crap from any guy, I’ve come too far on my healing process. If you have experienced domestic violence I’m so sorry but just know you’re not alone. I can’t promise you’ll find love I still haven’t but I can guarantee you’re strong enough to find love within yourself 💜🖤💜🖤. • • • #domesticviolence #survivor #loveyourself #knowyourworth #betterdays #youreworthit #believe #hope #unseeableme #keepgoing #icare #writerslife #writer #igwriters #instawriter #spilledink #mentalhealth #poetsofinstagram #igpoets #poetsociety #poetry #poets #instapoet #instapoetry

I can’t help it.. I push boundaries This life isn’t meant for living in a cage I don’t use big words.. they bore me I’m not Shakespeare.. I’m nobody A dictionary can’t explain my pain Some call me a saint but I sin daily Im not afraid of what people say Bipolar is enough to maintain I don’t run the popularity race I keep it slow and steady You can laugh at my pace but I’m walking with grace I don’t belong to anyone or anything I’m only attached to making a change 💜🖤. • • • #mentalhealth #bipolar #bpd #invisibleillness #mentalhealthawareness #hope #slowandsteady #survivor #ally #icare #writing #writingcommunity #instawriter #spilledink #poetsofinstagram #poetsociety #poetry #instapoet #instawriters #mentalhealthadvocate #justme #selfie #saturdayvibes #unseeableme
My biggest fear, a spoken word awkward silence, stumbling confidence No one’s listening, my heart is pounding A message to relay, no time for retakes no time to waste... So I’ve given up trying to reach perfection I’m just trying to spread a message about an illness that needs attention. It’s terrifying to tell someone you love that you have something that can’t be seen and is misunderstood. I remember hiding bipolar due to the the stigma now I’m reaching out praying for a good outcome. You never know what someone’s feeling...Please be open minded and listen to what they’re revealing 🖤🙏💜. • • • #mentalhealth #mentalillness #bipolar #bipolardisorder #depression #invisibleillness #mentalhealthawareness #spokenword #writing #writersofig #instawriters #spilledink #mytruth #ally #mentalhealthadvocate #poetsofinstagram #poetssociety #poetrylovers #poetrycommunity #poetry #instapoet #unseeableme #keepingitreal
My good friend Dave and I go way back. He’s respected and protected me even when my illness told me I wasn’t worth a damn thing. Back then even he didn’t know I had bipolar but he never judged me for my wild ways. He sent me a dm replying to a poem I had written the other day and although I don’t do many collabs, I read these together and I had to post. Thank you @541b_rown for being an all around good guy and for letting me share this 🙏🖤🙏. • • • #collab #writing #spilledink #writers #writersofinstagram #writerslife #instawriters #poetsofinstagram #igpoets #poetsociety #poetry #poems #instapoet #writeitout #unseeableme #poeticsouls #keepingitreal #collaboration #poets #instagood
I stand by my words. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you’re going through I’ll be here for you. On the outside I may not look like I know about pain and suffering but I do and I don’t want anyone to go through that alone. I don’t judge so if you are going through something please dm me to vent. I probably won’t have an answer to your problems but I’m a shoulder to lean on and most of the time that’s all any of us need 🖤🙏💜. • • • #leanonme #ally #icare #youmatter #youarenotalone #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalhealth #mentalillness #invisibleillness #suicideprevention #bipolar #bpd #depression #unseeableme #writer #writersofig #instawriter #spilledink #poetsofinstagram #igpoets #poetsociety #instapoet #hope #reachout #poets
I had a very humbling day. We all struggle with different things but we can all give the same thing and that is kindness.

I know I’m enough we all are but sometimes I just wish life wasn’t so hard. I wish being alone wasn’t part of my story. I hate that the love I have to give is going to waste and that dying alone someday might be my fate. I believe what’s meant to be will be and hopefully my soulmate will find me and stay. Until then I’ll be writing and cuddling with possibilities 🖤🙏. • • • #possibilities #hope #waiting #love #soulmate #theone #him #loveiseverything #nevergivingup #ibelieve #faith #unseeableme #spilledink #writerslife #writing #writersofinstagram #igwriters #instawriter #poetrylovers #poetsofinstagram #poetsofig #poets #poetry #poetrycommunity #poetsociety #instapoet #igpoets #lovepoetry
It’s not easy to write about emotions you don’t want to feel and somehow make them sound beautiful and put a positive ending to pain written to fit in a little box for IG. People see the word mental illness or demons and they scroll by looking for “better vibes” and that’s ok I’m not judging but I’m not going to dismiss anyone who is having a hard time. I’ve been there and I still go there. There has been so many posts of words written from sadness that made me strong enough to deal with mine because I know how hard they are fighting and how brave they are for sharing their heart even in their darkest hour. If I never gain another follower or lose them all I’m ok with that I’m strictly sharing my story to help others even if it’s one person that now knows they’re not alone 🖤💜🖤💜. • • • • #mentalhealth #mentalillness #bipolar #depression #anxiety #invisibleillness #mentalhealthadvocate #unseeableme #survivor #ally #icare #youmatter #writing #writingcommunity #instawriters #spilledink #poetsofinstagram #poetssociety #igpoets #poetry #poetrycommunity #instapoet
It’s easy to love the innocent, the ones who haven’t had to build a wall so high to simply survive. I however love the broken like me because I know how strong the love behind the wall is.

It’s hard not to smile knowing I made it this far Looking back I remember hoping I wouldn’t see tomorrow Today I can finally say I know my future is bright Bipolar will always be a part of my life but I can clearly see it has no right to take it from me Some days are going to be a fight but I now cherish every moment I’m alive. • • • #mentalhealth #survivor #invisibleillness #bipolar #depression #hope #betterdays #smile #keeponkeepingon #pushthrough #yourenotalone #unseeableme #writer #instawriter #author #poet #instapoet #mentalhealthadvocate #justme #selfie
Most people don’t like talking about suicide and honestly neither do I but this is so important to me and the main reason I write. This is a true story and although I’m mentally ok now I wanted to reiterate how important it is to reach out to people who act like they’re fine. Often times the strongest people who spend their days helping others are the ones that may need the same help. They understand what’s it’s like to be at the bottom and they don’t want anyone else to be there alone. A simple text, a phone call, a comment on their poem or selfie can actually do more than trying to fix someone who is battling their own mind and most importantly know that just because others have burdens doesn’t mean they won’t be there when yours are too heavy to carry 🖤💜. • • • #liftothersup #suicideprevention #suicideawareness #depression #mentalhealth #bipolar #youmatter #everyonematters #reachout #mentalillness #darktimes #demons #darkness #hope #bethelight #savelives #writing #spreadhope #writerscommunity #writerslife #spilledink #poetsofinstagram #igpoets #poetsociety #instapoet #unseeableme #icare #yourenotalone #yourlifematters
I have never claimed to be perfect. I don’t have everything figured out. My IG page was made to reveal all parts of having bipolar not just the parts people want to know. I promised myself that no matter what I post it will come from my heart whether it’s in my darkest hour or my finest. But this post is true 24-7, no matter what we go through it’s up to us to rise above. I know it’s easier said than done and I’m not sure what everyone’s story is but for me giving up is not an option and I hope my words provide some sort of hope and comfort 🖤💜. • • • #riseabove #survivors #strength #warriors #nevergiveup #strongerthanyouthink #imokay #pushingthrough #goodvibes #real #bipolar #unseeableme #invisibleillness #writer #writersofinstagram #writerslife #instawriter #spilledink #poet #poetsofinstagram #igpoets #spilledinkpoetry #mytruth #poetrycommunity #poetsociety #instapoet #mentalhealth #standtall
There is so much more to a person than what they reveal. Most of us don’t want sympathy we just want to be loved and understood. We think our lives are worse than others and sometimes that’s true but not always. Just because someone is kind doesn’t mean they aren’t battling things we know nothing about. As human beings it’s easy to get wrapped up in our own problems we don’t notice the person who fights the hardest for us is often going through far worse things. I’m not here to go into details about all of my surgeries etc this isn’t about me. I’m the girl with bipolar that shares that part of my story to let others know they aren’t alone but there is so much more to it. What I’m trying to say is let’s try not to jump to conclusions and assume what people reveal is the entire story. We should never take people for granted they might need us just as much as we need them 🖤💜. • • • #mentalhealth #everyonematters #bekind #reachout #bethelight #makeadifference #livewithpurpose #taketime #askwhy #bipolar #struggle #life #hope #strength #unseeableme #invisibleillness #writersofinsta #instawriters #writerslife #mytruth #spilledink #poetsofinstagram #igpoets #poetry #poetsociety #instapoet #real #words
People ask me why I share the things I do... it’s simple, I’ve been at the very bottom with no one to pull me out, no one to reach out to and not a soul who could relate. Honestly I still feel that way sometimes but what keeps me going is knowing other people feel this way too and if I have to be the misfit in life that’s ok. I’ll continue to spend every single day letting people know they’re not alone 🖤💜. • • • #nevergivingup #yourenotalone #lifeisntfair #itsworthit #youhaveapurpose #youmatter #yourlifematters #dontgiveup #pushthrough #mentalhealth #mentalillness #bipolar #depression #anxiety #humanbeings #hope #love #unseeableme #writingcommunity #instawriter #poetrycommunity #igpoets #poetsofinstagram #instapoet #spilledink

I know I have a lot of support from those of you that know me but honestly some days it’s difficult to use my own pain and turn in into something that’s relatable yet healing when I’m often struggling myself. I believe my purpose is to show others that even when you’re not well your words can still help people although it doesn’t always feel like they do. I give my best to everyone and everything and that has to be good enough for me...regardless of the outcome 🖤💜🖤💜. • • • • #movingforward #nevergivingup #cantbebroken #icare #livingwithpurpose #myjourney #mentalhealth #bipolar #bpd #depression #anxiety #invisibleillness #unseeableme #goodsoul #pureintentions #writersofinstagram #writingcommunity #poetsofinstagram #igpoets #poetsociety #healingwords #writingtherapy #instapoet
The broken often find souls similar to theirs but still search for that one that is whole and pure because let’s face it dealing with the broken is hard. We all want someone who understands, someone who accepts our demons and to find a love that lets us be who we are without trying to fix what’s broken. Not everything or everyone can be fixed. I believe angels don’t always appear perfect and majestic, sometimes they are sent to us wingless and broken. But that doesn’t mean they can’t love us just as passionately if not better 🖤💜. • • • • #angels #darkness #wildthings #unconditionallove #love #bipolar #mentalhealth #depression #demons #havefaith #hope #poetsofinstagram #poetsociety #poetrycommunity #poetryisnotdead #poetrylovers #poetry #instapoet #writing #writingcommunity #writerslife #instawriters #unseeableme

I write what I feel...Sometimes (actually mostly) it’s dark but my intention remains the same and that is to spread hope even if that means sharing my demons. People doubt my tactics and tell me to write pretty words because that’s what people like but it’s not just about likes, my words are intended for that person that needed to know they aren’t alone. To me the most beautiful thing in the world is reading someone else’s poetry that proves they have escaped death, that they continue to defeat their demons and they are not ashamed to share their story. I won’t ever change who I am for the world or IG 💜🖤. • • • #justme #wearewhoweare #everyonematters #youmatter #yourenotalone #hope #darkness #demons #mentalhealth #mentalillness #bipolar #bipolardisorder #anxiety #depression #itsokaynottobeokay #writersofinstagram #writingcommunity #poetsofinstagram #poetsociety #instapoet #instawriters #unseeableme

Finding your place in this world isn’t easy, especially when you have an illness no one can see. One thing I have learned is we have to play the cards we are dealt or give up and fold. It doesn’t matter if we are born sick, it’s up to us to reach our goals regardless. Nobody said life would be fair. Comparing ourselves to others only holds us back. Bipolar makes the simplest things seem out of reach but that won’t deter me from creating a life that makes me happy 💜🖤💜. • • • #unstoppable #nevergivingup #survivor #chasingdreams #pushingthrough #unseeableme #bipolar #depression #mentalhealth #hope #happiness #onelife #betterdays #thejourney #writerslife #instawriter #writingcommunity #poets #poetsofinstagram #instapoet #poetrylovers #newday
I felt this like it was yesterday, and honestly it was difficult for me to hold my composure reading it let alone share it. Not because I’m ashamed of bipolar or how it has tried to take my life but because the world doesn’t always understand mental illness and assumes we choose the way we think. It’s just not true and it’s awful when you’re battling your own mind to stay alive. Just because this is a past experience of mine doesn’t mean I’m cured now, which seems to be the only time these posts are welcomed or acceptable. Some people deal with suicidal thoughts daily or weekly. It doesn’t matter how often the illness strikes, it does not make one person weaker than another. As terrifying as it is at times, it’s vital we share our different stories and voice our tears along with hope so that others know they’re not alone 🖤💜🖤. • • • #mentalhealth #suicide #mentalhealthawareness #bipolar #depression #anxiety #bpd #mentalillness #darkness #mentalhealthadvocate #invisibleillness #hope #ally #nevergiveup #yourenotalone #poetsofinstagram #unseeableme #poetrycommunity #poets #writerscommunity #icare #spokenword #everyonematters
Maybe it’s just me but being who you are in this world isn’t always easy.

There’s a few writers, one specifically that inspired this poem. I truly believe there are angels among us who despite their own issues still make an effort daily to selflessly help others. I appreciate those rare few that do this. I wouldn’t want to live in this world without them.

This was actually my part to a collab that was never posted. The weather, life and bipolar has me in that dark mood but I promise I’m doing good 🖤💪🏻🖤 • • • #mentalheath #madandmental #invisibleillness #bipolar #bipolardepression #inmyhead #thinkingoutloud #darkness #hope #strongerthanyouknow #mentalhealthadvocate #ally #writer #writing #writerslife #writeitout #poetsofinstagram #igpoets #poetry #darkpoets #instapoet #unseeableme #justme
I found this today flipping through some of my older writings that I haven’t got a chance to post. I thought damn nothing has significantly changed since then except I’m stronger now and I don’t feel lonely anymore. Love is something we all hope to find, some of us get a happily ever after and others find happiness alone. I still hold on to hope that I’ll end up knowing what true love feels like and I’ll continue to believe in that. I have a daughter who watches my every move and if nothing else I’ll believe in love for her 🖤💜. • • • #love #hopelessromantic #hopeful #illwait #writersofig #writerslife #writersofinstagram #instawriter #unseeableme #poetsofinstagram #igpoets #poetsociety #poems #poetryisnotdead #poetrylovers #instapoet #poetrysociety #poets
We all play an important role in the lives of people we meet. Sometimes we help others, sometimes they help us and on rare occasions we find love. Regardless of the outcome it’s vital we let those special people know how much they matter and how they’ve made our lives better. I’m not tagging who I wrote this for he knows who he is. I’m thankful for you🖤💜. • • • #goodsouls #angels #friendships #love #allies #thankful #blessed #writersofig #writerslife #writing #poetrylovers #poets #igpoets #poetsofinstagram #poetryisnotdead #instapoet #mentalhealth #onelife #appreciatethelittlethings #unseeableme #poetsociety
I find it really sad that the pages that are supposedly advocating mental health think it’s ok to build their following and grow their platform without actually supporting those that have a mental illness that still try to help others when sometimes they are fighting for their own life. I don’t care how amazing or unexperienced of a writer someone is if they are sharing their emotions about an illness that is so hard to explain in attempt to tell others they aren’t alone and that page unfollows them, how dare they even say they’re a mental health advocate. It’s not about followers but working together to spread hope is what advocating is and why I started this page. I don’t only talk about mental health because I’m human and I don’t only want to focus on the part of me that is unwell. Anyway I had to get that off my chest so thanks for reading and thank you for supporting me and more importantly mental health as a whole 🖤💜🖤💜. • • • #mentalhealthadvocate #bereal #beselfless #supportothers #bethelight #savealife #payattention #realshit #makeadifference #livewithpurpose #mentalillness #bipolar #bipolardisorder #depression #anxiety #ptsd #spilledink #writing #mytruth #poetry #poetsofinstagram #igpoets #instapoet #unwell #justme #unseeableme
There are so many poems I read, even captions under selfies that are filled with sadness and emotions of people who truly feel alone. Some with mental illness, others just broken down by life. A lot of these poems go unrecognized because it’s human nature that we search for happiness and ignore the so called weak. Sometimes I want to reach out but it’s difficult to know what to say. I just want anyone reading this to believe you’re not alone, I see you, I read you and you are so much better than you know 🖤💜🖤💜. • • • #mentalhealth #mentalillness #pain #darkness #invisibleillness #bipolar #bpd #depression #anxiety #hope #keeponkeepingon #betterdays #icare #everyonematters #writerscommunity #instawriters #poetsofig #poets #instapoet #spilledink #unseeableme
We tend to listen to our friends but ignore what’s left unsaid. Most of us are struggling just hoping someone sees behind our smile. This was written for a friend of mine, I know all too well what it’s like being trapped inside your head wondering if anyone truly understand you 🖤... • • • #lookdeeper #bethelight #spreadlove #payattention #supportyourfriends #bethere #unseeableme #mentalhealth #positivevibes #realshit #💯 #writerslife #instawriter #spilledink #poetsofinstagram #igpoets #poets #instapoetry #instapoet #poems
There’s no better feeling than the security of someone’s touch. Knowing it will outweigh any anxiety that uncertainty gives us 💜🖤. • • • #security #loyalty #safety #histouch #love #theone #hopelessromantic #illwait #writing #writerslife #spilledink #poetsofinstagram #poetry #poetrylovers #poeticsouls #instapoet #poetsofig #poems #spilledinkpoetry #unseeableme
Sometimes the strongest people don’t always smile but that doesn’t mean they aren’t trying to make sure you do 🖤💜. • • • #mentalhealth #strength #mentalhealthadvocate #ally #youmatter #gooddays #baddays #icare #nevergivingup #bipolar #bpd #depression #anxiety #ptsd #adhd #everyonematters #unseeableme #invisibleillness #writingcommunity #instawriter #poet #poetsofig #instapoet
I tried to keep this “insta short” so people would read because I think it’s so important that anyone who loves someone with bipolar knows that sometimes this illness will feel stronger than the love you try to give them but that doesn’t mean the person with bipolar isn’t trying to love you back. I cry every time I write about bipolar because I’m so passionate about making sense of it not just for myself but for others. I’ve been on both sides of this mood disorder. I’ve been loved having bipolar and I have loved people with bipolar. No matter the outcome just know more than likely that person is trying to love the best they can along with trying to survive. Please don’t give up on someone you truly love who is trying 🖤🙏💜. • • • #mentalhealth #mentalillness #invisibleillness #bipolar #bpd #bipolardisorder #depression #nevergiveup #love #hope #mentalhealthadvocate #ally #writer #writersofinstagram #spilledink #unseeableme #poetry #poetsofinstagram #instapoet #instapoetry #poetrylovers
When we have the flu we stay in bed with no guilt until we get better. We cancel plans, call in sick to work, miss functions and everyone understands. Mental illness doesn’t go away it’s always there and there are times it’s almost too much to bare yet most people don’t realize we aren’t well because we look healthy and strong. If I accomplish one thing in my life I want it to be doing my part in showing mental illness is as real as any other illness. I want those of you who are suffering to know that if you’re doing your best that’s enough 🖤💜🖤💜. • • • #mentalhealth #mentalillness #invisibleillness #mentalillnessawareness #bipolar #bipolardisorder #ptsd #anxiety #depression #bipolardepression #hope #youarenotalone #youareenough #hanginthere #unseeableme #spilledink #icare #poetsofig #instapoet #writer #instawriter #quotes #authors
I have made so many mistakes. I’ve trusted people when red flags were hitting me in the face. Moral of the story is I will never depend on a man for my happiness. Moving on to me is as easy as brushing my teeth. Once you’ve let me down I don’t look back. It sounds cold but I would never expect someone to allow me to mistreat them. We all deserve true love and if I can’t have that, I’m still going to gracefully carry on🖤💜🖤💜. • • • #strongerthanyouthink #nogames #realshit #overit #cantbreakme #movedon #writeitout #writingistherapy #selflove #knowmyworth #spilledinkpoetry #unseeableme #instawriter #poetry #mytruth #poetsofinstagram #realwords #💯 #poetsofig #instapoet #poetryporn #poems
Love isn’t one sided. It took me a long time and a lot of soul searching to find enough self love to reveal my demons and I believe that has helped me understand that everyone has them, even though they may not look like mine. We all suffer from time to time, some more than others but if I’m willing to show someone I love...mine, I deserve to know theirs so I can do my best to be there, to care and prove I’m not scared. I don’t like when people disappear then show up and expect my love to still be there. Life isn’t fair but love should be 💜🖤💜🖤. • • • #love #trust #wearewhoweare #revealyourself #imhere #icare #waiting #reallove #unconditionallove #unseeableme #mentalhealth #mentalhealthadvocate #writerscommunity #instawriter #thinkingoutloud #writingitout #poetsofinstagram #poetrylovers #poets #poetsofig #instapoet #poetrycommunity #spilledink
This world, no matter how crazy it gets will never revolve around a single person. It doesn’t matter who you are. We are all a little bit selfish sometimes and I don’t believe there’s anything wrong with that but I think the world would coexist better with a little more caring about others and lot less trying to satisfy ourselves 🌎❤️. • • • #coexist #selflessness #bekind #everyonematters #bethechange #spreadlove #unity #oneworld #writerslife #instawriter #spilledink #unseeableme #poetry #poetsofig #mentalhealth #instapoet #quotestoliveby #thinkingoutloud #goodvibes #betterdays #cometogether
I can’t recall how many times I’ve said I was not feeling good and automatically people ask do I have the flu or a cold. By no fault of their own they only knew physical (explainable) sickness they had no idea bipolar was the culprit. I had never revealed it to anyone but my doctor. Years I spent lying saying oh it might be a 24 hour bug or something when really I was dying mentally. As I slowly started revealing my illness on IG and to people in my real life I not only realized how many others suffer from this but I noticed I didn’t have to lie anymore I could say I have the flu if it’s true or my bipolar is winning today. Having someone ask about my mental status is something I’m not familiar with but it feels really good to be able to tell the truth. It feels even better that someone asks about my mental health and even more having someone give a shit. So to the person who asked me this very question today...thank you and to those of you that are supportive of people with mental illness...thank you. Your kindness does not go unnoticed 🖤💜🖤💜. • • • #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalhealthadvocate #bipolar #bipolardisorder #bipolarawareness #bpd #anxietydisorder #panicdisorder #ptsd #depression #invisibleillness #support #allies #thankyou #hope #unseeableme #nevergivingup #survivors #instawriters #spilledink #poetsofig #poets #poems #instapoets #authors #words
The world has a way of trying to keep us contained in a perfect little box. I wish I was brilliant at one specific thing and just do that but I’m bipolar so I’ll never meet that expectation. I’m wild, tame, mellow, loving, sad, happy and as creative I can be with a mind that is traveling. I don’t know how to be anything other than me. Consistency will never be my thing and I’m honestly perfectly alright with that 🖤💜 • • • #bipolar #anxious #loving #wild #tame #happy #sad #depressed #authentic #justme #unseeableme #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalillness #invisibleillness #depression #writing #keepingitreal #spilledink #bipolarquotes ##poetry #poetsofig #instapoet #whocareswhatpeoplethink #💯
I can’t count how many times I have chosen my demons over people or how many times people have chosen them over me. It seems easier than revealing issues that a person might not understand. Sometimes we all need self care and time alone but other times we push people away that would have understood and might of even been going through a similar thing. You can have demons and still allow someone to care about you. I’m not letting my demons win anymore 🖤💜🖤💜. • • • #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalhealthadvocate #invisibleillness #darktimes #demons #letpeoplein #bipolar #bipolardisorder #bpd #ptsd #depression #anxiety #unseeableme #spilledink #writersofig #poetry #poetrycommunity #instapoet #mentalhealthmatters
I contemplated telling this story but I figured I’ve already revealed I have bipolar, that I daily make mistakes and I’m a mess sometimes so might as well tell all. Everything I post is to bring awareness to something that I’ve either been through or is important to me. Not because I want sympathy but because I know someone will read this and know they are not alone and that they are worthy. With that said I’m not just single because I have bipolar or that I haven’t found the one. I’m single because I trusted my life in the hands of someone I loved and they almost took it for no reason at all. I thought bipolar was the most terrifying thing that I’d ever have to deal with but that night when I heard the ambulance sirens I felt like the luckiest person in the world that people were coming to save my life. I was accustomed to suicidal thoughts but that short period of my existence I fought like hell for my life and that changed me forever in a good way. I know I write about mental illness a lot but I know about suffering in general. I blamed myself for everything and I’ve learned it’s not our fault what people do to us it’s their own doing and to fully heal you have to know your worth. Anyway I’m bawling writing this and I feel ridiculous but that’s my story...at least for tonight 🖤🖤💜💜... • • • #domesticviolence #survivor #mentalhealthadvocate #invisibleillness #warrior #ally #healing #movingforward #cantbreakme #hope #love #peace #kindness #bipolar #depression #unseeableme #writers #instawriters #poetsofinstagram #poetry #spilledink #instapoet
My entire life I have felt like a burden. I have spent so many years comparing myself to people who don’t have a mental illness. I have sat among friends smiling but dying inside wondering if anyone knew how hard I was trying. “Fake it to make it Danielle” is all I told myself. My family and friends would ask how I’m doing not knowing the demons I was fighting so I always said “I’m good”. It’s not easy to say bipolar is trying to take my life and I need help. Not really a “good vibes” conversation. I knew they couldn’t cure me anyways. Finally I couldn’t hold it in anymore so I wrote my book to explain everything. That seemed a whole lot easier than a face to face with everyone speaking about a complicated illness I was hiding. I didn’t want help I just wanted people in my life to know I care, I’m trying and if I don’t make it to functions or seem sad it’s due to bipolar not them. That alone made my relationships with my family and friends so much better. I don’t have to feel bad or hide anymore. If you are hiding your illness I encourage you to reveal it. The people who truly care will still be there 💜🖤... • • • #mentalillness #mentalhealth #invisibleillness #mentalhealthadvocate #bipolar #bipolardisorder #mentalillnessawareness #depression #anxietydisorder #hope #icare #youmatter #unseeableme #poetry #poetsofinstagram #spilledink #writersofinstagram #authorsofpain #beyourself #nevergiveup
If I would’ve given into bipolar and it’s demons I wouldn’t be taking this selfie explaining how happy I am to be alive even on my worst days. I wouldn’t of published my book or been able to spread hope through my words. I wouldn’t be carving pumpkins tonight for my daughters 20th Halloween birthday. I would’ve never heard my daughters laugh again or been able to give her advice when the world fails to make sense. I would have missed so many sunsets and road trips with her. Not being able to hug her again would be far worse than anything this illness could dish out. Not everyone has a child, spouse or family that supports them but there is always something or someone that can be your saving grace if you look hard enough. There is something everyone has to offer this world. I don’t have all of the answers, I wish I did but what I do have is compassion for people...especially anyone contemplating or has attempted suicide. I’ve been there and I’m not ashamed of that. My illness did that not me. I’m still “Danielle” and I remind myself that every single day. I encourage anyone who is suicidal to do the same and reach out to professionals or someone you trust. Like I said my DM is always open 🖤🖤💜💜... • • • #mentalhealthadvocate #suicideawareness #suicideprevention #invisibleillness #depression #bipolardepression #bipolar #bpd #youmatter #reachout #yourenotalone #icare #dontgiveup #fightforyourlife #unseeableme #poet #writer #author #justme #mentalillness
