You earned them the hard way! Keep fighting!
I'm so glad I kept fighting, and didn't give up.
When you have repeated episodes of illness, each one is tougher in some ways. The backwards feeling, the resignation that whatever you did wasn't good enough to stop another onslaught. Each dip feels like someone hitting you, again and again, and every time it's harder to get up, especially as you know another punch is coming. And when you mental state is compromised by the illness anyway. It's tough.
But I kept getting up.
I kept fighting.
I will keep going.
and I know you can too 💙
Peace, Love and Punches,
Must order a print for her.
This new piece is probably going to be one my new favorites, and one I come back to during a low. It's an amazing reminder that through all the stuff that has happened/is happening through a seemingly excruciating time, you can come out of it stronger than you were when you started.
Keep up the good fight! And never stop doing what you love!
I always feel uncomfortable with the whole "your scars are beautiful" sentiment because beautifying them in that way almost welcomes giving yourself more if they're "pretty." Not that anyone should make someone feel ugly for them either. Just have understanding and love and compassion. This isn't necessarily beautifying the scars in that way though because they're not actual scars and they're not there to look beautiful... The stripes are there to show that she is fierce, she is tough, and she has, can, and will endure. And I love that.
And I will never stop supporting you and everyone else struggling with any type of mental illness
And even for the ones who do not have ine, never forget that you all have the power to fight your demons
i used to tell myself i didnt do it for the people that would be sad about me being gone
maybe i was just in fear of having nothing left at all
but now i just think it is too easy. living is a challenge, a tree in the seasons, it now and then carries fruit. and that fruit is worth living for
tastes better every time
but i have gotten way better in the last 5/6 years.
i ended up alone, starting to find friends slowly, and now i have a few, like two or three. but good friends are worth the wait
i started climbing up that darn tree . imma make the fruits grow once im the mage of the tree and have all the magic and power and i will control the fruit so it falls in the summer like rains during the monsoon
and i drifted off my point.
Glad to see someone who follow this line.
