I just want to write something about mental health and how sometimes it can affect your day to day life. This post is more about an encouragement to those who feels lost, lonely, misunderstood or not understood at all.
It’s hard to explain your feelings when you’re in that moment of finding answers to questions that all of the sudden become burdens. It’s all in your head. It’s really challenging to make decisions for simple things and when no one around you really make sense at all. These moments can last a second or months, for someone years. Don’t give up please.
Just give yourself a generous amount of time to stand back up. Don’t feel under pressure only because the world around you runs so quickly that you feel to chase everything. Don’t be in control, just let it go. Be courageous, listen to your guts and act fast there’s no better way than just pick up the phone and call your mother, a good person that listens to you and let it all out your chest. Cry in abundance. Don’t stop until your eyes are just balls full of water. Let it all out.
Grab your brush. Take your pen. Write. Draw. Run against the wind. Stare at the ceiling imagining to be under the stars. Feel a morning light pushing inside you even in the darkest moments. Find yourself in the dark, in the light, in front of the mirror. Recognise your face. Stare at your eyes. Remember why you’re special and unique. 7.5 billion of people are out there. 7.5 billion of different and unique individuals like you are going through the same things in life. The struggle to make a sense.
Be insane in your sanity. And sane in your insanity. Whether what’s around you don’t make sense you don’t need to make sense for what’s around you. Smile. Cry again. Have a long shower. Re-read your favorite book. Try. Not too hard. Just try.
I’m Roberto. An artist. A human being. A rebel. An essence that feels, touches and sees. I’m the only cure to myself. My mind has been corrupted, played many times. I always won. I always lost. I am the only one who can decide what to do with it. I am in control of my heart. My mind. My soul.
Thanks for letting me share my journey with all of you. Thanks for reminding me that I’m not the only one. I’m not alone. We’re not alone.
