Mental Health Monday – 02.27.23


No one is coming to save you.

You create the entirety of your reality.

You are responsible for your own life and for the lives of others.

Giving up is not an option.

It’s okay to be afraid. God knows that I am.
The fact is, life does not get any easier as you get older. There is always more responsibility to take on. There are always more people counting on you, and this is only if you are fortunate.

Your physical and mental health, your family, your friends, your future; they all depend solely on you doing one thing – not quitting.

Lay the groundwork for your foundations and support early in life, if you can. Don’t waste your time with drugs and alcohol and trying to impress stupid loser people in your peer group. Trust me. The only person you need to impress is future you.

That’s not saying you shouldn’t forget relationships, but make sure you are building towards something with others who are similarly focused. The meaningless distractions of drama and neurotic exploits we see in the media are not healthy relationships.

Those support systems are going to be important. There are going to be many dark nights and dull, grey mornings where the world seems pointless. There are going to be hardships, and trials, and setbacks that will make you question the point of it all.

You will reach your limit.

But you are limitless.

Just hold on.

The tide will roll back, and you will see the clear horizon again. You just need to stay alive. Keep breathing. Survive.

It’s up to you. I believe in you. You will win.

Have a great week.

Be well.
Be safe.

Much Love.
