THE DARK SPIRAL OF MENTAL HEALTH
Like so many of you, I have struggled with my mental health. 2020, has really tested it to the limits. I wanted to remind you today, the importance of our mental health, awareness, some facts but most importantly HOW AMAZING YOU ARE.
A POEM FOR YOU..
World Mental Health Day, I feel your struggle so deeply in every way, Please don't feel alone & reach out, Don't allow that bully self doubt, Sneak in and stop you, I recognise the storms you have weathered through, Your feelings are valid, You have never been invalid, You are so strong to be here right now, Even if you don't know how.. You survive & bounce back stronger from every fight, Day and night, I know the demons bite, Your inner soul you need to ignite, Glow for the world because they deserve your magic, For them to denied this would be tragic, The pain doesn't lessen over night, It doesn't mean there isn't at the end of tunnel a bright light, Asking for help isn't weak, You feel your future is bleak, Though the bravery shown, Is evidence of how much you have grown, Adding each brick to your castle as your rebuild slow and steady, You will never be ready, There isn't a perfect time, Now is your prime, Be kind to the amazing person you are, You are a star, You deserve to go far, You are amazing as you are, I see deep within, The bully that doesn't want you to begin, Life is a mystery & we have the world to explore, When it comes to your pain you know you deserve more, I am here, I will never disappear, The light of hope to guide you through, So that you can see the true magic in you!
