Hi loves!
As you may know, it's currently May which signifies Mental Health Awareness month. The aim of this month is to de-stigmatize mental health and create a safe and open place for people to share their stories and provide help for other people. For other additional resources, check this page out!

Bad mental health may lead to suicidal thoughts or feelings of not wanting to be here anymore. I understand how hard these thoughts can be to beat or escape from so I thought I would try and help some people out by providing 100 reasons to keep going! Please remember that your struggles are valid, no matter what and please remember that you are worth so much more than your brain is telling you.
