My Mental Health: March & April

Mental health is one of the things that Lila and I strongly advocate for, yet it's still difficult for me to talk about. For my mental health, this year has been one of the most challenging years of my life. Sometimes I feel as though I will never be good enough for anyone, or I will never make the differences in the world that I strive to make. A few adults have told me that we have it easy, doing school virtually -- even some students agree -- but I, along with many others, am having a much more difficult time with virtual school, which does impact my mental health. In March I felt like I was being torn down; every time I accomplished one thing it seemed like I had ten more things to do. Even the things I chose to do for pleasure started to become stressful. I used my spring break to replenish. I filled my days with well-deserved rest, self-care pampers, and got myself back on track. To make me feel more like myself, I got my hair and nails done and started choosing outfits for summer, which for me is a great way of getting excited. I started posting more on Feelempowered, which was a major goal of mine, and it made me realize why Lila and I are doing this. You all help us so much in every way possible, so thank you. It's currently 8:30 AM on Monday, April 5, and I feel so much happier and more determined to stay strong. Remember that you are loved, you matter, and you ARE enough.
