December 7 2019


I seek solace in the daily grind. A kind gesture, a calming voice, or just plain learning to let shit go.

I know i wrap myself in a cocoon of mental illness identity. Really i should let it go. Yes i will never be cured but it doesn’t have to be my identity. I need to find solace in being me and that being good enough.

What do you find solace in?

  1. You are not your illness, it does not own you. Find a private space, turn off everything electronic, and listen to the silence. Do not be obsessive, and do not be negative. Live in the moment, rather than reliving the past, or worrying about the future. Know that people care about you. 💖
