Hello lovelies! I have been struggling so much lately and I know that so many of you are struggling too.

You're probably exhausted and scared, considering any option that'll make the overwhelming pain a little dimmer... You find that you're irritated, numb, depressed...You just want to be in the dark because the sun has always let you down.

You poor thing :(

I want to tell you that the storm is here now but it WILL NOT be like this forever. I have a quote for you:

"And once the storm is over, you won't remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won't even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won't be the same person who walked in. And that's what the storm is all about."

I found this quote on an app and I live by it. This storm will change you. It will change you for the better and the worse. But you are going to be okay, I swear.

Today I was in so much pain that I wanted to die. I couldn't deal with the demons in my head. So I hopped on here to write an article, to help whoever I can.

I have a few tips, to help you cope and overcome:

1. Spray your favorite perfume on your sheets...just a spray will make it smell like you, ya frickin' goddess

2. Follow amazing accounts...I religiously follow Instagram accounts like @course @feminist @feministvoice ...Please follow them! You'll be happier!

3. Buy yourself flowers...You are so gorgeous and loved and amazing! I would buy you flowers if I could!

4. Have collections on social media like, "Happiness" or "Help"...These collections should be things that make you feel better on down, down days. You can do the same thing with Youtube or Spotify playlists

5. Play songs that make you feel loved...May the Road Rise to Meet You by Celtic Thunder has helped me so much on my down days. It makes me feel so loved.

6. Put the suicide hotline into your phone, on speed dial...It's always good to have it right there...Whether you need someone to talk to or are in trouble, call it if you need to. Don't self-harm or do things that will hurt you in the long run...If you do, call this number! 800-273-8255 is the one for the U.S.. It should be easy to look it up wherever you live.

7. Get paint. Any type of messy paint. And just be raw and real with it. It doesn't and shouldn't be good. Just put on your music and f-ing paint. Be angry, be sad or anxious...feel your emotions and paint with them

8. Take care of yourself. You are so worthy and deserving of being loved. So start with yourself. Eat good, nourishing food. Drink warm drinks. Drink water. Exercise and take walks. Smile and love yourself babe

9. Every day tell your beautiful body, that has worked so hard to keep you well, "I want to be your friend." Because you do. Work hard to be your own friend.

10. Remember that you are so, so strong. To wake up and endure this pain, even if you get nothing done, can be like climbing Mount Everest without any gear or preparation. No matter what, this isn't your fault. You deserve love and light and so much happiness. Just try your best to stay positive, Think good thoughts about yourself and others. Try to get out of bed every day and see the sun.

Guys, think about this: maybe the entire universe was created just to be seen by your eyes. You are worthy of doing amazing things. Breathe. Even if you don't know how or when, you are 100% going to make it through this. I promise you. Try to imagine a future. Maybe you are in Africa building wells for kids...Maybe you are in Amsterdam with a pastry and a good book...Maybe you are getting married and having kids. Imagine your amazing future. You will get there somehow. Don't lose hope. You are supposed to be here in this world. You have a job to do. Even if that job is just to get better, you owe it to yourself to get there.

Please beautiful, if you need to talk to someone, message me. Please. We can support each other. You are never ever alone and you will make it through. I am always here for anyone who needs to talk and I mean that.

Lots of love,

Xx Willow
