“I’m learning to accept myself for who I am.”
“It can be extremely isolating and painful to have a mental illness that’ invisible to others.”
“Behind my lazy front is a thought process far more complex than you can imagine.”
“We don’t need advice or a fix, that’s what our therapist is for; we need a friend who wants to be supportive.”
“I have the mental illness, the mental illness doesn’t have me.”
I’m seeking to unlearn the expectation that time will help old trauma fade away.
