I had too much to dream last night…

i want to change people. i
want them to learn how to
feel each other. how to lose
and find themselves in the
eyes of someone they don’t
know. and i want them all to
feel like they’re not alone,
that we’re all in this together,
and i hope that never changes.

imagine that. what a beautiful
way to live. what a beautiful
way to feel, and what a beautiful
way to survive.

This r.m. drake quote really sums up, in many ways, what I’m wanting to achieve with this blog. The number one comment I hear when talking about sufferers of mental illness… “I just don’t understand”. I just don’t understand how someone can be that unhappy, all the time… I just don’t understand how someone could take a knife and cut themselves… I just don’t understand how someones mood could shift so fast… I just don’t understand how things could be so bad they’d kill themselves… and the one that to me is the most crucial for there ever to be proper understanding and treatment of mental illness, I just don’t understand how I never noticed anything was wrong.

Through this blog I’m really hoping to be an encouragement and support to others that battle with their own mental illnesses. But on top of that, and equally as important, I want to open a window of understanding for those who have to live alongside people struggling with mental illness. Those same ones that find themselves not knowing what to do or say, other than “I just don’t understand”.

Please follow my blog. Feel free to make comments, and please, share the links…especially if you know someone who might benefit from what I have to say.

Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog…

One thought on “I had too much to dream last night…

  1. You tweeted asking for blogging advice. Great start! Like it. I recommend taking WordPress’ free Blogging 101 and Blogging 201 courses at dailypost.wordpress.com/blogging-university/. Honestly, I just now took them, over a year after I started blogging. Use the WordPress Reader to search tags for BPD. Read related blogs and leave comments. Start conversations and develop mutually supportive online relationships (as in friendships). You are set up on Twitter and Facebook, which is great. Keep it up. Best of luck!
