This topic can be very sensitive for a lot of people and I in no way want to step on anyone’s toes! However, I do want to make sure that those people know they are loved and they are not alone through this constant fight! Mental health is a serious part of living a healthy life and when we are battling something that can feel like its controlling your life, it is exhausting and it is a HUGE battle!
I have struggled with anxiety my whole life, Internal and General anxiety has always been a big part of my life. I mostly only have struggled with Internal anxiety for the past couple of years, but I have also struggled with some general before as well. Anxiety is something that can be very serious for some people, so bad that it can even stop them from preforming daily activities. Here is the thing though, God died on the cross for us and because of that, he wants us to cast all of our anxiety upon him. He is the one who is mighty enough to handle it all! Whenever we feel anxious, Jesus tells us to pray instead of worrying about things. Philippians 4:6 says ” Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
Depression is also another mental illness that not only I, but a million other people struggle with. It is not ever easy and will never be. The only thing that could ever keep me chugging through every day is Jesus and my fake smile that keeps me going. Jesus being my number one fan tells me all of the time that he loves me, but he also loves every person who can take time for him and carry him in their hearts! Whenever I am feeling down and or depressed, I usually always try to quote some scripture to myself. A lot of times I will quote Songs of Solomon 4:7 “You are all together beautiful my darling; there is no flaw in you.” This verse reminds me that I am a perfect creation in the eye of God. I don’t have to worry about fitting in or pleasing others because I know that everyone of us is struggling with something.
I know this post was quite short, especially for me, but I feel like I was able to say everything I wanted too. I want everyone to know that you are never alone! You are never the only one struggling with something! If you ever feel like hurting yourself or anyone due to these illnesses PLEASE stop and find someone to help you! They will never leave you feeling ashamed of yourself!
YOU ARE LOVED. YOU ARE WORTHY BEYOND WORDS CAN SPEAK. YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD.
Peace Out- Kiley
