We all are haunted by the battles of our youth, in all our broken hearts and broken dreams.
What do you do when life shatters those you love like a million pieces of glass?
When other people fail to meet us in our needs, we often begin to wish they knew what we were going through, often to the point that we wouldn’t mind seeing them bleed, as well.
If you have ever struggled with self-harm, thoughts of suicide, or any other mental health battle that leaves you feeling hopeless, I pray you know that you are loved more than you realize in your darkest moments.
The following are words for those who battle a mental disorder such as depression, anxiety, or another darkness. This is me reminding you that you’re not abnormal, you’re not inferior, and your life is incredibly meaningful.
What does an honest life look like?…Maybe that’s why I wanted to be an actor, because it comes so easily to me. I’ve heard it said that I wear my heart on my sleeve, but deep down inside I know that’s not always true. I want to be applauded, so I hide behind appearances, talent, titles, and associations as I wear a broken smile and bow for the invisible audience.
