I am not your inspiration


Ever since I started talking openly about my mental health, I have been showered countless times with the complement "you are such an inspiration". I always took this to heart and felt warm inside. Yet it dawned on me that I am only an "inspiration" because of my mental illness. Like all experiences in life it is what you do with it that defines who you are, I use my mental illness to help others. However, it dawned on me that I am only your inspiration when you are faced with a pretty picture of recovery.

A letter to the healthier me


To a healthier me,

There are many old versions of myself that I could address this letter to, some versions were worse off, others better off but this letter is to myself last year, to a healthier, better version of myself.
