“Today, I am breaking the silence. I am telling the world everything I was too ashamed for anyone to know: That I am vulnerable. That I am flawed. That I have scars. That I am an addict. That I am terrified of being alone with my own thoughts. That I so desperately need to get the monsters out from under my bed, the demons out of my head, the past from haunting my present. No more hiding, no more running, no more secrets, no more pretending to be OK, no more camouflaging the beautifully broken mosaic that is me. Today, I will pick up the pieces and put myself back together because it is selfish to not share myself with the world.
Today, I am being brave. I am speaking up. I am willing myself to be open to everything. To questions and their potentially insufficient answers. To acceptance and its contrasting criticism. To happiness that sometimes only exists with prefacing disappointment. To healing and the relapses that tend to come with it. Whatever the case may be, whether my journey includes more bad than good, I am open. Because this is how healing starts. This is how stigma is challenged. This, is how we become better.” #twloha#depression#blog#seeyoutomorrow#life#keepliving#stay#youareenough#jamietworkowski#love#today#onlyhuman#advocate
