We are not your stigma
We make up 3-4% of the country
There are about 2-3 of us per classroom

We are not the classroom freaks
We are not your punching bags, or simply toys that you can play with until we break

Do not tell us to “just get over it”
Because if we knew how we would in a heartbeat

We are full of medications, therapy visits and constant hospital trips
We are soldiers in training simply learning how to fight this battle

But when you’re in constant war with your mind, time goes by so slow
Do not throw us down, do not call us crazy, and do not assume the worst of us
We are not monsters, but simply humans with broken hearts and broken minds
Covered in scars on our body and scars in our hearts

We are not the classroom freaks
We are the kids struggling with mental disorders

Do not tell us to “simply get over it”
Because one day we will get over it
And we will win this war

But we are not your punching bags
And we are not your toys to simply break

We are not your stigma
We are 3-4% percent of the country
And we make up 2-3 kids in your classroom

And we are soldiers training for battle
This war is not over yet.

My poem on mental illness (via thezachabels) ←

The thing about life is that you must survive. Life is going to be difficult, and dreadful things will happen. What you do is move along, get on with it, and be tough. Not in the sense of being mean to others, but being tough with yourself and making a deadly effort not to be defeated.

1. Make peace with your past so it doesn’t wreck your future. You are not who you were, or what happened to you.
2. What other people think is irrelevant to you. Don’t give them a thought. Go ahead and live your life.
3. Things will look different in a month or two from now. Just give it time,…


The Runner & The Therapist

A film about veterans, post traumatic stress, and mental health.

A feature documentary about a Marine returning from Afghanistan with the invisible injuries of war who meets a therapist who is confronting her own family history of  mental illness. 


Went for a walk. I love seeing flowers grow through cracks. It shows even something small & delicate can break through. Found a bench covered in plants.


The School of Medicine and Public Health at the University of Wisconsin-Madison recently reported about new research linking green spaces to better mental health. Researchers found that “The more green space in the neighborhood, the happier people reported feeling.” The findings led Dr. Kristen Malecki to suggest that “If you want to feel better, go outside.”

Your relationships aren’t all external. You have one with yourself and that one needs attention, too.
