Doing these videos literally brings so much joy to my heart! But real talk here... I was the very first customer to my own product 😶😅 sounds weird. I know. But it's true! I have always used artwork or colouring as an outlet when depression or anxiety starts to creep in, and as many of you know, this idea came to me after my own personal experience with post partum depression. That ugly elephant in the room that looms over so many new and unexpecting mothers. Depression doesn't discriminate. It creeps in at any point in life, even when it seems like everything is going right. But yet, it still all feels so wrong somehow. There's no one way to explain it. We each deal and fight our own battles and then plaster on that sweet happy face so no one else worries. But because we do that, we have all created a disconnect between mental health and society - because now we don't know when we are pretending, or being real.
👏It's 👏not 👏our 👏faults.
We want to be happy. We want it more then anything. And sometimes... when we are feeling happy, we don't always pay attention to things that may bring us down at that time because, well we want to be happy! But sometimes, those moments in which we are living high, someone we love deeply is so, so low. They are fighting a storm inside themselves just trying to not let that candle burn out. So, today, I am asking you to keep your eyes open. Look for the changes. Ask them how they are, even if everything seems fine. Don't let an 'I'm fine' be enough. Don't let their candle burn out. Don't let your candle burn out. Hold each other up and together make a human shield around your candles and fight that storm together. And always remember, a simple text or message that says, 'I love you. You matter so much to me and I deeply appreciate you.' can in an instant make you a hero for someone who was about to make a mistake. And if you are that person who needs that text or message right now, know - I love you. You matter so much to this world. You are strong. So much stronger then you could imagine. How do I know this? Because you're here right now reading this and that means you are a fighter! Keep fighting. Fight with me, with us. ❤
