MENTAL HEALTH: To anyone suffering from mental illness; you are one badass individual because nothing is more terrifying than battling with your own mind every single day.
I often see posts that say ‘we should talk more openly about mental health to reduce the stigma’ and as much as I agree with that statement its not something I’ve wanted to discuss myself. It’s not that I’m ashamed or embarrassed because I have physical ailments I don’t reference regularly either. Despite appearances, I’m quite a private person and it's my intention to brighten up the world with positivity (and unapologetically sexiness), so discussing my less than jolly experiences in life would surely do the opposite.
Personally, I don’t think people understand how stressful it is to explain what’s going on in your head when you don’t even understand yourself. When I’m having a down day/week/month I tend to shut myself away and rarely want to talk. However, I know how this can exasperate my feelings so I make a point of doing a few things to lift me up; maybe I’ll detail these one day if you’re interested. Anyway, I didn’t want to talk about me, I just wanted to say it’s okay not to be okay, and it’s okay to talk about it. Honestly, one of the reasons I’ve never mentioned this is because I’m not sure I have the emotional strength required to manage the potential messages and comments that will come or this discussion. I’m an empath and I already let the whole world get to me on a daily basis (hashtag true story 🙈🤷♀️). I just thought I looked sad in this recent photo and I struggled to find a cheeky positive description to go with it.
Anyway, your brain is a complexed organ and sometimes it gets sick or doesn’t work as well some days just like any other organ. So, make sure you take care of yourself and accept this post as a virtual hug from me. Much love to you all and remember to be kind for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. ❤️❤️❤️

-Я не рискую без ногтей остаться??
-Не, все норм))
Я то думала для фото нужны будут только мои ногти, но у фотографа своё мнение на этот счёт 😅 С утра узнаю что фотосессия в стиле пин-ап, за полчаса общими усилиями с Ксюшей сообразили мне вот такой кайфовый образ 🥰 Буду ждать снимки с нетерпением!
