We with mental illness tend to think we are weak but, is this really the case? Are we stronger than we think?Tweet
Since I started out on this mental-health blogging adventure, I have met so many wonderful people. People from all over the world doing their best to help others through their mental illness by blogging and podcasts, by providing peer support and through their own bravery. I have also found this digital world very helpful at times. I have to say, you’re stronger than you think.
But perhaps one of the most wonderful things for me is having others reach out to me for help. This is the ultimate reward because it does two things. It fills me with a great sense of honour and contributes to my healing, so thank you to all who have reached out, I guess it makes the healing process mutual.
You’re an absolutely amazing bunch
While I will never understand why some people feel inspired by my writings, I am nonetheless blown away when I hear it roll off their tongues. It’s nothing short of inspiring and it keeps me going. Sometimes your kindness comes at a time when I need it most. As many of you are already aware, it is so hard to be consistent when you’re fighting a mental-health condition.

Similarly, I am truly humbled by the number of people I have had the pleasure of meeting in real life. And no matter how many times I hear about someone’s mental health journey, I am always blown away by their courage. It takes real strength to bare one’s soul to someone, especially face to face. To all of those who have overcome their fears to talk to me, I thank you for your trust.
So, here’s to all those who have braved their own battles. You’re an absolutely amazing bunch and are stronger than you ever thought possible. For those of you who are fighting moment by moment, remember, you have made it through every one of your toughest moments, not because you are weak but because you are strong. Based on this alone, I know you will get through them all and see happier times once more.
