Hello, my name is Faith and I've been managing depression and anxiety for as long as I can remember but I am not a mental health professional. If you need help finding a mental health care provider call 1-800-662-HELP (4357) or visit BetterHelp to talk to a certified therapist online at an affordable price.

To be honest the last few days have totally sucked. I want to write something inspiring or useful for all of you but what I really feel like doing is crawling back under the covers. However, I decided to show up anyway. It was a tough decision and on depressed days I have to make a lot of really hard choices.
I’m choosing to be proud of myself even though most of my to-do list is still waiting for me
I’m choosing to keep creating content to help other people.
I’m choosing to prioritize taking care of myself and my mental health (thank God for BetterHelp and long journaling sessions on days like today).
I’m choosing to believe that the future is fucking bright and there are better things waiting for me in the future.
These choices aren’t easy to make and on days like today, it’s hard to believe there is happiness waiting for me in the future. It’s hard to forgive myself for not accomplishing the things I wanted to do. A lot of things are really hard. I’m going to continue making the tough choices, doing the best I can and loving myself fiercely.
Loving myself when I’m stuck in bed
Loving myself when I feel like garbage for no reason
Loving myself because I know that I’m dealing with something that is hard and I’m doing the best I can
I hope if you’re dealing with something hard right now this inspires you to love yourself through this process. Being on any kind of mental health journey is hard and it’s tiring. We deserve all the kindness we can shower on ourselves as we navigate it.
