Don’t be afraid, you’re already dead.
My mental health has been scary lately. Not many people know this but I suffer from dissociative identity disorder which is super mind-fuckey and terrible to live with. I often get confused about reality and sometimes lose touch with it altogether. It’s so hard to feel grounded when my soul is constantly leaving my body because it feels unsafe. I just want to cultivate safe space with safe people but It’s so hard for me to connect, even though it’s the thing I crave the most. It might not seem like it from my Instagram presence but I am so alone and so scared most of the time. I think I’m going to start talking about this more to try to bring less shame for myself, and maybe others suffering from similar illnesses.
I just want to say that if you are going through some scary stuff inside your brain, you are not alone, you are a fierce warrior and I am so happy you are here because you are helping the universe with your unique perspective, helping it learn and grow and see things in a new light. I know it’s hard to live and although you may not want to, thank you for waking up in the morning and thank you for trying. You are perfect. You are good.
