I’ve always been a sucker for poets, musicians and anyone who dares to share their deepest thoughts. I can’t help it 💜🖤💜🖤 • • • #thinkingoutloud #canthelpit #deepsoul #foolish #dontcare #words #lyrics #poems #music #love #writeitout #therapy #unseeableme #writerslife #writersofinstagram #instawriter #poetry #poetsofinstagram #instapoet #poetsofig #poetrylovers #poetic #souls
So obviously my posts have been dark the last few days. I never try to give false hope and say “oh look at me everything is perfect” that would be ridiculous. Most of the time I’m doing pretty good with managing bipolar most people who know me but don’t follow my insta still don’t know I have it. Regardless I sometimes hit that low for no reason. But I just keep going even when it seems impossible because I know it’s temporary. I’ve made it through hell many times I’m not about to give up now. I’m sure as hell not about to give up on anyone else who endures this. I thought being happy meant victory but honestly not giving up does. If anyone relates to this you’re not alone and I know how strong you are for continuing to carry on 💜🖤💜🖤 • • • #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalhealth #invisibleillness #mentalillness #bipolar #bpd #anxiety #depression #ptsd #farfromcrazy #goodsoul #justme #icare #youmatter #endstigma #unseeableme #writing #writerslife #instawriter #poetry #poet #instapoet #poetrytherapy #poem
I personally don’t see anything wrong with drinking in moderation if it doesn’t affect someone’s life negatively. I however spent years on the wrong bipolar meds and used alcohol as a way to cope with my emotions. I literally could not go to social events without drinking (a lot) I somehow thought it would help my anxiety but instead I ended up prolonging dealing with my illness. I have stories I could tell that still make me cringe. I’ll save those for future posts. Basically I’m trying to say vices are not the answer to handling bipolar. For me excessive drinking made everything worse. I believe moderation is key and it’s obviously different for everyone. I used alcohol as medication and coping, not to relax or have an occasional fun night like most people. Maybe someone reading this right now is where I was and I want you to know there is hope it can get better with loving yourself enough to start making small changes that turn into life changing ones. 💜🖤💜🖤 • • • #mentalhealthadvocate #invisibleillness #bipolar #bpd #depression #anxiety #selfcare #panicdisorder #mooddisorder #endstigma #unseeableme #goodsoul #writerslife #poet #instawriter #spilledink #poetry #instapoet #real #youmatter #icare #keepgoing
I feel like this pic matches what I’m about to say....The facade I walked around in to hide having bipolar was almost as exhausting as the illness itself. Making up excuses of why I couldn’t do certain things so I didn’t have to tell anyone I’m laying in bed desperately searching for reasons to live, or sick from trying yet another medication. The worst part was being the life of the party feeling fabulous and comfortable in my own skin but the next one I’d be the anxious outcast in the corner. Bipolar doesn’t care about your plans, your job, your relationships....IT OWNS YOU. No doubt the right cocktail of meds saved my life but not hiding my illness anymore is a freeing feeling I can’t describe. Years ago if you said you had bipolar people would literally run, some still do now and I just smile and wave as they leave. I don’t blame them for what they don’t know. I just know who I am and that is a person who has reached despair that shouldn’t exist and someone who cares about other human beings whether they have an illness or not. My favorite part of this story is I’m alive, I finally have hope to give and I found a way to turn my chaos into something positive that might make a difference in someone’s life 💜🖤 • • • #mentalhealthadvocate #bpd #bipolardepression #mentalillness #endstigma #bipolar #invisibleillness #mooddisorder #anxiety #panicattacks #depression #youmatter #icare #ally #unseeableme #goodsoul #author #writer #instawriter #poet #instapoet #selfloveadvocate #justme #selfie #hope
I’ve spent so many years questioning my every move. When people know you have bipolar you’re instantly judged. So right out of the gate you feel like you have to shatter stigmas. The ones on movies where the stalker/murderer chick is never blamed for being a shitty person it’s always “she’s bipolar”. Or the school shootings never being associated with the shooters bad upbringing so it “must be” bipolar. My favorite misconception is the bipolar memes on social media. I don’t have to explain those we’ve all seen them. I’m not going to sit here and say everyone with bipolar is a good person but I can tell you for a fact bipolar is misunderstood. Truth is there are a ton of reasons people are violent and bipolar is unlikely to be the sole reason. The fact is most of us living with this illness put others before ourselves. We have a mood disorder that doesn’t mean we’re crazy. So all I know is I’m going to post on my good days and bad and do my best to make others see bipolar isn’t evil and most of all let others like me know they aren’t alone. For the record the craziest thing I’ve ever done is post my heart on Instagram for all to read 💯🖤❤️ • • • #mentalhealth #mentalhealthadvocate #endstigma #mentalillness #invisibleillness #unseeableme #bipolar #bipolardisorder #depression #anxiety #ptsd #selfloveadvocate #bpd #bpdawareness #author #youarenotalone #panicdisorder #writingtherapy #writer #instawriter #mytruth #youmatter #nevergiveup #poets #instapoet #goodsoul #beyou #youareworthy #hangon
A lot of mental health advocates talk about overcoming or curing mental illness. Even doctors know there is no cure only ways to better maintain it. I remember seeing posts when I was at my lowest saying “I had bipolar but now I’m healthy, you can be too if you do x, y, z like me.” Well I’m not sure what they mean by “healthy” but having bipolar myself, a dad and friends with it I know each case varies and there is no quick fix. Some find ways to manage it better but it’s not something that disappears with a magic wand. Whatever stage someone is in with their diagnosis I don’t judge and I’m not here to say I’m cured and you can be too. My page is my truth, my experiences past and current and to let others know they are not alone and it’s ok to be who you are at this very moment. This isn’t a journey of curing people it’s to shatter stigmas and be there for anyone who is struggling 💜🖤 #endstigma #youareenough #invisibleillness #hanginthere #icare #youmatter #ally #unseeableme #mentalillness #mentalhealthawareness #bipolar #anxiety #depression #ptsd #onedayatthetime #dontgiveup #writing #writerslife #instawriters #poetry #poetsofig #instapoet
I admire anyone who refuses to blend in. We are all unique but I love the people who embrace who they are and don’t apologize for it. This world is so harsh and I love when people brush off insults instead of holding in all the creativity that deserves to be known. #unique #authentic #real #creative #unapologetic #wild #weird #different #unseeableme #writing #writerslife #instawriter #poetry #quotes #poetsofig #poets #instapoet #poems #invisibleillness #author #mentalhealthadvocate
Sometimes you have to write it out or ride it out but either way we seem to find a way to push through days where we feel lost and are clinging to hope. I’m amazed at the strength I see and read from all of you daily. It helps me keep going 🖤💜. #pushthrough #writeitout #keepgoing #feel #letitout #nevergiveup #invisibleillness #unseeableme #mentalhealth #therapy #bipolar #depression #anxiety #writing #writerslife #instawriter #poetry #poem #poetsofinstagram #instapoet
We all want to be understood but some things only you will go through. Whoever continues to accept everything you are, keep them close and be there for them too. Everybody needs people who become part of their journey not those who detour around you when things get difficult. #journey #understanding #bekind #bethelight #gratitude #keepwalking #pushthrough #appreciatewhatyouhave #unseeableme #invisibleillness #depression #bipolar #anxiety #mentalhealth #advocate #ally #goodsoul #writersofinstagram #instawriters #poetsofig #instapoet #spilledink
I suppose it’s human nature to want what we can no longer have. Some are in it for the chase and others appreciate the meaning of love and don’t treat it like a game. No one deserves to be an afterthought and real love won’t treat you as one. #waitfornoone #afterthought #knowyourworth #nogames #reallove #worthy #loveyourself #moveon #waitforit #goodlove #unseeableme #illwait #hopelessromantic #writer #instawriters #writerslife #spilledink #poetrylovers #poets #poetsofig #instapoet #poems
Sometimes things don’t work out. It doesn’t matter why but revenge has never been my closure It’s more rewarding to leave with dignity 💯. #dignity #selfworth #aboveit #goodsoul #knowyourworth #nogames #realshit #bekind #worthit #neversettle #norevenge #unseeableme #writersofinstagram #writerslife #instawriters #spilledink #poetsofinstagram #poetsofig #instapoet #poetrylovers
I hate crying....I hate my eyes burning and I especially hate my eyes being puffy. With that said it’s worse to hold it in. Strength is letting the pain out, understanding it and moving on....however you can. Not everything is fixable but we can choose to have good moments. I’m not just writing to write I’m writing about what I know is possible. I post my experiences because I’m hoping someone out there is reading this and knowing it’s ok to cry and fall apart. We all do it...most just don’t post about it! #cry #scream #letitout #heal #understand #accept #moveon #unseeableme #selflove #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalillness #invisibleillness #bipolar #anxiety #depression #ptsd #endstigma #writersofig #writerslife #instawriter #spilledink #poetry #poetsofig #instapoet
I wish I could say I was a perfect mom but I’d be lying. Having a daughter at 18 and having bipolar was honestly the scariest thing I’ve ever endured. But when I held her in my arms for the first time it took my breath away. She already loved me without knowing anything about my illness she just knew she was safe in these arms of mine. Her trust in me made me trust that I would be a good mom despite my struggles. It has always been just the two of us and we have been through the unimaginable but 19 years later it’s still the two of us and we are stronger than ever. She’s my hope, my strength she’s my everything. There is no medicine in the world that holds the healing powers she does. So I just want to say you can have bipolar and be a good parent even when people doubt your abilities. You can raise kids that thrive... I know this for a fact. #mentalhealthadvocate #momanddaughter #justthetwoofus #mylife #worthit #invisibleillness #warriors #mybabygirl #motherslove #unseeableme #depression #bipolar #anxiety #mentalillness #invisibleillness #survivors #instawriter #instapoet #justme #daughters #momlife #realshit #ourstory #forever
We all have quirks if you accept theirs they should accept yours. For so long I forgot I was important because I was too busy “being nice” and boosting guys egos. I look back and get mad at myself but honestly I have no regrets. My intentions were always good and still are and I gave my all. I just know now that I deserve the same love in return. We all do 💜🖤. #wearewhoweare #acceptyourself #acceptothers #loveislove #noinbetween #knowyourworth #neversettle #worththewait #unseeableme #writing #writerslife #instawriters #poetry #poetsofig #poetsofinstagram #poetrylovers #instapoet
If someone who rarely cries does so in front of you and apologizes, chances are that person and their pain is real. They trust you and most likely aren’t looking for attention just a safe place they can finally let it out. #tears #pain #refuge #shouldertoleanon #bethere #real #eventhestrongbreak #unseeableme #mentalhealthadvocate #selfloveadvocate #bekind #givehope #writersofig #writersofinstagram #instawriter #spilledink #poetrylovers #poems #poetsofinstagram #poetsofig #instapoet
I’ve been down this road so many times. People say I look so innocent and to some extent I would agree but looks are deceiving. The quiet ones can blow your mind it’s up to you how. I feel like I had to say this because I think being a good person makes you a target to get taken advantage of and that’s just not going to happen 🖤💜. #dontputupwithshit #staystrong #beyou #speakyourmind #youdontoweanyone #love #noregrets #doyou #onelife #unseeableme #strongerthanyouthink #ally #goodsoul #nogames #realshit #writingcommunity #writerslife #poetry #poets #poetsofinstagram #instapoet #spilledink
This was actually part of a text message to my father he also struggles with bipolar. Sometimes just knowing someone loves you and is willing to keep hope going when you can’t is all the hope you need. I thought I’d share this because it’s real life and it’s how we help each other get through the illness. My family is my everything but so are all the people that need someone who understands. I’m not a doctor or a magic healer but I have experienced a lot and I have never once turned away someone needing help getting through the darkness. My DM is always open and I truly do care💜🖤. #hope #illcarryyou #icare #youmatter #hanginthere #dontgiveup #iwontgiveup #ally #unseeableme #mentalhealthadvocate #invisibleillness #bipolar #depression #anxiety #writing #writersofinstagram #instawriters #poetry #instapoet #poetsofinstagram #poetsofig
So many times I did let love in and every single time it was only lust on their end. So I started holding everything in no more tears no more giving a shit. Whatever came my way I handled it. Now that I’m older I still find myself doing this and I know that’s going to prevent me from finding love. Trusting someone with your emotions is everything but more importantly knowing no matter what you can handle any outcome is the strength that is required to ever truly be loved 🖤💜 #forgiveher #healingtakestime #emotions #love #trust #worthit #hope #toostrong #believe #unseeableme #invisibleillness #goodsoul #writer #writersofinstagram #writerslife #instawriters #spilledinkpoetry #poetsofinstagram #instapoet #poetsofig #poetrylovers #poem
People always ask me why do I care so much. The answer is always the same....I put others before me whenever I can because I have known enough selfish people to last me a lifetime. #liftothersup #noexpectations #bekind #selfless #priceless #rewarding #icare #youmatter #nevergivingup #livewithpurpose #unseeableme #mentalhealthadvocate #goodsoul #writer #writersofinstagram #writerslife #spilledink #poetry #poets #poetsofinstagram #instapoet
I remember before I started this page I would scroll through insta on my personal wondering if anybody else feels the same sadness I do. Questioning if their selfies showed true happiness or were they hiding pain. Everybody just seemed so happy all of the time. I hoped they were but I couldn’t fake happiness I would only post on good days. Deep down I knew there had to be people out there like me searching for something real. Pages that told the whole story of someone’s life not just the good days. I needed to know I wasn’t alone. I have come a long way since then but I still have highs and lows. Times I cry so hard my eyes burn like hell the next day and there was no real reason to even be sad. Bipolar is generous that way. This pic is a perfect example of that. Creating this page terrified me but I knew it’s something I had to do. I intended to let people know they aren’t alone but actually a lot of you have helped me know I’m not. I just wanted to say thank you for that 🖤💜 #invisibleillness #keeponkeepingon #pushthrough #reallife #flawed #strong #thankful #painistemporary #betterdaysahead #unseeableme #mentalhealthadvocate #selfloveadvocate #bipolar #depression #anxiety #ptsd #endstigma #writer #instawriter #author #poet #instapoet #justme
This is my love life and being a mental health advocate wrapped into one. Often I question if I should be trying to give hope, when sometimes I too am searching for it. I’m also terrible at love, always doubting anything good. But I believe being broken actually makes me more compassionate and strong enough to keep fighting...for mental illness, the broken and for love. I truly care even on my worst days and I hope that shows💜🖤💜🖤 #hope #broken #deepsoul #quiet #healer #doubts #pushingthrough #invisibleillness #lifeisrough #icare #youmatter #unseeableme #mentalhealthadvocate #ally #nevergivingup #writing #igwriters #spilledink #poetry #poetsofig #instapoetry #poetrylovers
Being a quiet person who listens more than you speak is not a bad thing. But holding things in trying to please everyone constantly is. It will boil over eventually...it did for me. Your problems are just as important as the problems of people you know. No one is superior. It took me too long to realize that but now that I do, I make sure to say how I’m feeling once in awhile. Nobody should get to a point their demons start screaming 💜🖤 #youmatter #speakup #tellyourstory #icare #dontbesilenced #speak #dontholdback #unseeableme #invisibleillness #mentalhealth #advocate #bipolar #anxiety #depression #ally #nevergivingup #dontgiveup #writer #instawriter #writerslife #spilledink #instapoet #poetsofinstagram #poetsofig
This journey of being a mental health advocate is not an easy one. Especially while maintaining my own illness. But honestly there is nothing else I’d rather do than try to help others by sharing my struggles especially the dark ones, the things few talk about. I remember a time when the only thing I hoped for is that I wouldn’t wake up the next morning. I was done...Done with stigmas, done with bipolar, done with hiding it, done with all the meds that made me numb...just done. It literally came to a do or die moment. My mind said give up but my soul kept reminding me I have a daughter who needs me, family who loves me and a world full of people enduring similar things and people I just had to tell my story to so they know bipolar, depression, anxiety etc doesn’t mean crazy like the stigmas portray. So I wrote a book explaining everything. I started my IG page in hopes I could not only reach others like me but people in general so they could see bipolar looks like me, it looks like famous people it looks like average people period. Because we are just people living with an invisible illness. I’m not a criminal, a felon, or a stalker. I cry reading poems, I feel others pain, I feed stray animals, I love with everything I have even when I feel unworthy. I’m a good person and my illness will never change that. So if you hear the word mental illness I hope you think of me and my story. I hope I was able to change at least one persons view today. I know this was long so thank you so much for reading 💜🖤💜🖤 #mentalillness #mentalhealth #survivor #advocate #ally #unseeableme #suicideawareness #depression #anxiety #panicdisorder #bipolar #bpd #ptsd #invisibleillness #endstigma #selfie #writer #author #poet #goodsoul
For years I wasn’t able to heal because I was too afraid to let myself feel. I didn’t like a lot of my emotions so I thought hiding my pain and acting tough would somehow make it all go away, It didn’t. This also relates to love. I pushed people away never giving my heart a chance to beat for someone else. Feelings in general scared me. Now I know that it’s ok to hurt, cry, love and be rejected etc..That combination creates balance it does not make a person weak. #emotions #strength #feelings #itsoktofeel #balance #balancedlife #unseeableme #mentalhealth #advocate #ally #depression #anxiety #bipolar #ptsd #everyonematters #writer #instawriter #spilledink #poet #instapoet #poetrycommunity
What I write is my truth. I know some talented poets who could make this sound amazing in few words. But I’m just me and this journey I’m on is to share my experiences and make a difference however the words come out. I just want to make people feel something. Give them hope, make them laugh, make them smile, change the way they view mental illness etc...Honestly to me that is what writing is all about. It’s why I write ✍🏻💜🖤. #today #goodday #onedayatatime #daybyday #moments #memories #thelittlethings #lifeisprecious #unseeableme #mentalhealth #mentalhealthadvocate #selfloveadvocate #ally #icare #writerslife #writer #instawriter #author #poetsofig #instapoet
The words “mental illness” once scared me as much as the illness itself. Stigmas cause people to not get the help they need or not reveal what they have due to fear of rejection. I can’t speak for everyone but I can speak for myself and a ton of others I know personally just like me. I started this page to show we love, laugh, cry, make mistakes and most importantly we are just people who didn’t ask to be born with this lifelong struggle. I’m so grateful for every person that ignores stigmas and gives us a chance to show who we are individually. Not all of us are good people obviously but neither is every healthy person. Ultimately everyone just wants to be known for who they are not an illness they have, or their skin color or beliefs etc. 💜🖤💚 #youmatter #everyonematters #allies #endstigma #bebrave #tellyourstory #icare #fightingforacause #unseeableme #mentalhealth #mentalhealthadvocate #selfloveadvocate #depression #anxiety #bipolar #ptsd #invisibleillness #everyone #writer #instawriter #author #poet #instapoet

For so long I felt like people kept knocking me down and some did (literally) but mostly I fell by my own doing. Never believing that anyone believed in me but in reality I didn’t believe in myself. I had to take a step back from my world to finally see that no one had given up on me, they were just waiting for me to see the strength I couldn’t. So whatever or whoever knocked you down, try to get back up and believe in yourself. One thing I know for sure is we are stronger than we think 💜🖤💜🖤 #strength #believeinyourself #strongerthanyouthink #yourmindispowerful #standtall #keeponkeepingon #youmatter #mentalhealth #selflove #mentalhealthadvocate #selfloveadvocate #unseeableme #writerslife #writingtherapy #instawriter #poetsofig #instapoet
