What Is Mental Health?


Mental health is a journey. Not a destination. Along the way I set goals, places in my mind and in my life that I want to visit. I want to visit the ability to be vulnerable with my romantic partners. I want to visit that moment when I find a reason to get out of bed today even though I have so many reasons not to. There is no guide for me, that’s why I fill the way with vision boards and affirming Instagram accounts and I let my blinds up when I wake up to let the light in. That’s why I pray and keep friends who don’t want the drama. That’s why I cover my room in color and wear all black! For me, it’s not about forgetting the darkness, but being strong enough to choose to lift myself out of it everyday.
