Ohey yall! I colored my hair and pulled myself out of my deepest depression I've experienced in my life! These past few months have flipped my world upside down. A very close friend of mine suddenly passed away which I then isolated myself after. I avoided my phone and social media at all cost. I couldnt eat, I was drinking alcohol every day, I felt horrible and I looked horrible.
I felt like I had no one, that I was utterly alone in the entire world.
I wanted to hurt myself.
This is my most personal post that I've ever posted and I decided to share my experience because I know there are so, so, so many people out there battling their own demons, whichever way they can. And I am so proud of you. So proud that you're toughing out the storm.
It will pass. Even if you feel so hopeless that all you see is darkness and despair, I promise you it will pass.
Some days will be easier than others, those are the days you hold on to. Find small pleasures that ease your pain, and grow on those pleasures. Take care of yourself and your mental health.
Make a conscious effort to eat, drink water, sleep, and socialize.
And when you encounter those really difficult days, find a calm quiet place that you can find peace in, and say to yourself "I am strong. I'm battling a war against many inner demons, and they will not win." I see you, and I'm here. Life can be so fucking hard.
If you have thoughts of hurting or killing yourself, please talk to someone. Either a professional, friend, or even me ❤
