Mental illness is like fighting a war where the enemy’s strategy is to convince you that the war isn’t actually happening.

When I get mad. I get stubborn.
Deep down I have two opposing thoughts of what I should do. But then that thing in my chest that keeps me alive, yeah, it influences otherwise. And that thing also let’s me get used to things that I truly shouldn’t. And then I find myself asking if I have been doing anything right. Or if every ounce of me has all been wrong. Am I where I’m supposed to be? Am I doing and being who I am supposed to be? How will I ever know? The slump I am in has got me so messed up. I mentally cannot find an answer. Even when I reach into my subconscious and search for one.
Once upon a time I was falling in love, now I’m only falling apart

My darling, you are allowed to fail without being a failure. You are allowed to make mistakes without becoming one. More opportunities will present themselves, you will find hope again.
Maybe you just have to live for the small things, like being called pretty or someone picking up the pen you dropped or laughing so hard that your stomach hurts. Maybe that’s all that really matters at the end of the day.

I just had the deepest and most real conversation with my dad. Best friend.
