Many know the true battle on the inside. Living with mental illness is a lifetime of internal conflict. The war between who we want to be and what we are constantly rages. Fleeting feelings of happiness overwhelmed by ghost emotions of violence, hatred and hopelessness. Conquering an invisible force that is a daily test of your faith in yourself and others. Forcing that smile to try to recreate the happiness you so long for. That aching loneliness even in a group of your closest “friends”. When all hope seems lost…
we keep fighting.
We exist for the ones persisting to fight for their happiness through the darkness and those supporting their loved ones through their pain. Who want know what it feels like to be heard and to connect with other caring individuals. We are here because we understand what it feels like to be alone and unheard, dealing with mental illness. So our mission is to bring together a family of people who appreciate others going through the same situation, and want to make a difference.
These days it’s hard to really have something that motivates you to get up in the morning yes you may be driven to achieve your goals of trying to be the best in the office, getting a promotion, playing a sport. But do we have any goals that aren’t just about us?
Is there if you search deep in your heart and your mind right now, what drives you? If it’s not your dream for the future, if it’s not something you’ve always wanted to achieve, or helping out your family or anything like that. Then stand for someone means go out and help others. Change your mindset from how can I help me to how can I make a difference in someone’s life. Be that the shining example of how humans are supposed to be. In public you’re a kind caring human being. Try to go above and beyond when you see somebody, don’t just walk by, instead now you’re gonna walk up to them and ask how they are doing , say hi, give a smile.
The problem is that we have been so so focused on our phones, so focused on stuff that doesn’t really matter that we’re ignoring the people around us. Live with your head up and look around. So if you’re feeling all right be a little caring and kind to somebody else and if you’re having a bad day you’re going to be hopeful that somebody’s gonna be a little extra positive towards you, it’s just a give-and-take.
The more and more people who believe in it, we can have more of a supporting society. Which I know is very naive but it’s also possible, then the outliers who decide to be purposefully rude and negative, will stand out more and we can ignore them.
There are a lot of people out there who can’t speak up for themselves, whether they are not capable emotionally, physically capable. There are people out there dealing with severe mental who cannot communicate their needs. Or people dealing with physical disabilities that make it much harder. If can and you feel confident in your heart, then stand for them!
