When Everything Feels Dark: Mental Health Awareness


When everything seems dark around me, I reach for the light 
I don't know how but I try 
To find a joke here and there, a person to smile at.

I can't say for sure that these things help my plight. I just know that at least for a little while, in those moments, I stop seeing myself so much

It's a slight relief to focus on other things, on other people. 
It gets exhausting. 
I don't know how much longer I can keep up with it to be fair.

But what I do know is, today. Today I called a friend who I often wondered why they dont call me. 

And I laughed at a joke on Instagram. It wasn't much but atleast, the burden wasn't on me for a few Minutes. 

It wasn't on me
