I am no less of a human.

I had a day.

Of tears and screams and break downs and panic and anger and doubt.

My burnout took hold and I spent the day on fire with anxiety.

Nothing felt right.

Nothing felt safe.

Nothing felt possible.

I descended into darkness and lost myself in doubt.

I descended into hatred and lost myself in negativity.

I descended into fear and lost myself in loathing.

That is okay.

Relapses are okay.

I am no less of a human because my anxiety took hold.

I am no less of a human because my depression hijacked my brain.

I am no less of a human because I had a bad day.

I am no less of a human because I have a mental illness.

I am no less of a human.

Actually, truth to be told, because of this ass kicking illness, I am more.

I am resilient.
I am courageous.
I am strong.

No, the tears, panics and anger didn't feel good but

HELL YES 
they are pure proof that 
I AM A SURVIVOR 
and will always be 
A WARRIOR.

So here's to us and our days.

However they were,
However we are,
May we know,

We are enough, no less.
