The truth hurts sometimes. A LOT. Mental illness occurs as a result of biological and environmental factors. Have you heard the phrase: biology loads the gun and environment pulls the trigger? It’s a good visual.

I spent years of my life on my knees begging God to make my me “better”. I put so much hope in each new medication, treatment etc. but the reality was I was asking the wrong question.

Today I pray every morning: “God, show me something new today. Remind me of my purpose. Keep me grounded. Help me to seek health. Help me be the best me I can be. Give my doctors wisdom. Give me courage, faith and endurance. I Christ or Lord, Amen”

Accepting that my mental illness is here, has allowed me to focus on moving forward, adapt and become myself. Acceptance has been one of the hardest parts of this journey. But while hardest also most liberating.

There is no cure for mental illness.
