Growing Pains and Body Aches: A collection of poems, letters and artwork navigating adolescence and mental health
You only get one existence on this Earth and the vast majority of it is spent in this desperate search of purpose and acceptance. We, as humans, are not kind to ourselves. We punish imperfections that are out of our control; we hide our struggles with mental health because we are afraid of how others will perceive us. It is ok to be simply human. You do not owe anyone a reason behind your existence. You are more than worthy of love and acceptance, not just from others, but from yourself.
This world is not kind to us, so why tear yourself apart for not being “good enough”? There is no such thing; you are simply enough.
