Personal Win I’ve suffered from depression and anxiety my whole life. My parents would constantly get on me for my messy room. Today I changed, still depressed, but ever so slightly happier.

Personal Win 5 months ago, I had a plan & intent to kill myself. I checked into mental health treatment and completed it about a month ago. I’ve never slept & felt well rested and NOT felt suicidal for more than a few days in my entire life. For the first time, I’m planning for a future I will live to see.

Personal Win Huge personal win! I made it to 29 today despite severe mental health issues. I look back at highschool and remember KNOWING I wouldn't live to 25. Yet, here I am four years past that, happy, healthy, and absolutely loving my self and my life. Keep fucking fighting, keep finding your smiles.
