Every life has a purpose. Share your story and you may help someone find their own. The reason I decided to become honest about my personal struggles is because the issues that I’ve dealt with are still taboo to talk about. Self-harm, eating disorders, addiction, and mood disorders are things people aren’t always open about. But it’s so important that someone starts talking about these issues, so that those who are struggling know that there is help out there. It is my job to be a beacon of hope for people that don’t have any.
Stand up for those who can’t yet. Give them support and strength.
