Today is the first day in 18 years that I'm not starting another year of school, and it's a weird feeling to process. Cody Gohl oh so eloquently sums it up. "People feel different things after they graduate college but I can guarantee you that almost all of them feel a little deflated, like a little glowing something has been sucked from the center of their heart. People grieve for college in different ways and to varying degrees of extremity, but there is always this emptiness that they wade through. For nearly a quarter of my conscious life, this place has been my home. This place that has been at times both my greatest playground and my greatest barbed-wire-fence stands before me as something that is suddenly neither of those things any longer."

Instagram Poet’s “3-Step Book” To Conquer Trauma

Depression is real. Anxiety is real. PTSD is real. ALL mental illnesses are real. Don’t believe anyone who is trying to tell you otherwise.

Every time I’m stressed I distract myself with doing something nice for someone else and it’s the best thing on this planet to watch someone’s eyes light up because they weren’t expecting something nice to happen.
