I wrote something on a whiteboard in a classroom at my internship during this spring that has now been my own mantra, and I hope it can help others reading this blog and elsewhere. I originally wrote a saying to remind my students that who you are right now is okay, and that you will only continue to grow and change. Little did I know, this has helped me on my good days, and especially on my bad, anxiety ridden days.

To all those living with a mental illness, or simply have a friend or family member that needs the extra support, please remember that,

“We are all continuous and beautiful works in progress.”

This is a quote from Rebecca Divico, author of our 5th Coping: This is Who We Are entry that you can find here.

Always remember you are not alone.

You are loved.
