For When You Don't Believe You Can Go On Any longer

They always said there would be days like this.

For When You Don't Believe You Can Go On Any longer

You have to realize that every single moment up to this one- you have overcome. Every terrifying moment in which you questioned whether or not you could continue surviving- you have made it through every last one. You have to realize that you do not give yourself enough credit. You don't believe in the worthiness of yourself enough. You don't believe in yourself enough.

It's so hard but sometimes in life you have to pick yourself up. You have to be real with yourself. When you need help, you have to ask the people around you for help because I guarantee they will be more than happy to help if it means keeping you going another day, and another one, and another. You have to realize you are loved. The people around you love you and they want you here.

You have purpose. Even on your worst days, you are a beautiful soul of sunshine and light and all things good and worthwhile. Life gets hard. Life gets stressful. Sometimes, each of us feels a deep pitter-patter in our hearts, causing contemplation as to whether or not we actually have enough strength left as to go on. You have that strength. It's buried so deep in your heart that sometimes it is difficult to even see it. Find a flashlight and look, deep down where you have never soul-searched before. It's so difficult to turn the flashlight's switch on sometimes... You are so out of energy and you are so tired, fatigued, and exhausted. You don't think you have any more energy to give. You just want to give up and give in, throw the towel in and say, "I'm beat. I'm done." But-these are the moments where life is testing you.

You can't lose hope. Hope is the only thing that is stronger than anything else in life- fear, anxiety, anger, worry, stress. Hope is what is going to allow you to dig yourself out of the most difficult situations.

Life is worth living. You are worth it. Please, please don't give in to the pressures and anxieties and stresses of life. Life is worth it. you are worth it, you have purpose, and you have enough strength to continue on even in the toughest of times. Just know, you are loved, even when you are at your worst and believe nothing will ever get better,

Life will get better. It is at the deepest, darkest moments of our lives that we discover ourselves for who we truly are. Nothing worth having in life comes easy. You have to fight even when you don't think you can get on any longer.

I believe in you. But it is you who must believe in yourself.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.
