It’s amazing what a bit of make up and a smile can hide. these photos have been taken a mere 24hrs apart. on the left photo i look like a well balanced normal woman (i’m 30, i have to face facts that i’m classed as a woman now 🤦🏼♀️) and on the left i look broken. the truth of the matter is i’m broken in both pics i just chose to paint a picture on the left as i didn’t want the world to know i was broken that day and i didn’t want to feel broken anymore. it doesn’t really matter how much make up i put on, i still felt broken all day! my mam has bipolar and has been held on section under the mental health act for 4 month! in that time my stress levels have catapulted and my anxiety is pretty much at it’s worse it’s ever been! i’m not sleeping well as i’ve been sleeping on the sofa for the whole 4 month my mam has been in hospital! my brain isn’t working the way i want/need it to anymore but i’m working on it, i need to fix myself in order to support my mam as much as i need to! i need to fix myself for me!! as well as my mental health difficulties i have a few other health problems going on as well as trying to get back to normality at work... it’s hard! every day is a massive struggle but i can only keep going, even when i think i can no longer cope!
just know that when you see these ‘normal’ people in your life you never truly know what’s going on in their life’s or what battle they’re having with themselves in their head! and if it’s you having these battles yourself, you are not alone 💜 #mentalhealth#mentalhealthawareness#notslimmingworld
