17 Perfect Tweets For Anyone Struggling With Mental Health
You deserve to feel happy and vibrant.
ByLindsay Holmes

09/10/2016 06:47am ET | Updated September 11, 2016

Mental illness has a way of sucking the color, vibrancy and excitement from life. It can cause crippling physical and emotional symptoms and, occasionally, it can even lead to suicide.

Thatโ€™s why itโ€™s so crucial to send the message that mental health conditions are treatable. A national conversation on mental illness and suicide erases some of the stigma that comes with psychological disorders and, hopefully as a result, propels people to seek professional support.

One of the best ways to have this conversation is through the vast platform of social media. In honor of World Suicide Prevention Day on September 10, the mental health-focused nonprofit organization, To Write Love On Her Arms started the hashtag #IKeptLiving. The tweets are an inspirational reminder that seeking treatment for mental illness is essential.

Take a look at some of the encouraging messages below:

#IKeptLiving because i knew one day i would find the light out of the tunnel, and finally that day has come๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ’๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒท

#IKeptLiving because my illness doesn't get to win. My dreams do.

oh kaylie i really feel for you. see im a teenager as well and i cut too. honestly its bc my life is rubbish like im sure yours feels too. my parents are over protective to the point tht its just crazy. i dont even have access to the internet and have to use my cousins stuff like im doing rn. plus i love music n my parents do not support my dreams of being a singer. i cant play an instrument n they wont get me vocal lessons either. they wont let me date anyone either like im not even allowed to talk to guys n i go to an all girls school . all my friends constantly talked about their bfs n so i lied to them saying i had one too and made up all this rubbish to tell them n they found out i was lying n so now i have no friends either.
but heck im not here to tell my sob story.
im here to say its all right tht ur depressed and tht u cut. maybe im not the best person to advise u since i still cut as well but im trying to stop n i just want to give u some help. but anyway the first step to getting better is to accept yourself and your actions
then u work on urself and ur actions.
have u told ur parents u cut? i told mine and guess what? they laughed and told me stop being so attention seeking. so i understand if thts not a path u can take
some coping mechanisms ive found tht help me to not cut is to use a marker to draw lines on my body where i would cut and then place an ice cube over tht spot. i also use rubber bands to flick myself. distraction is also a great way to cope. for me its painting reading and singing. lol yeah im tht type of girl. find what distracts u and use tht to cope.
reasons not to cut include tht hey ur precious. maybe not to the ppl around u rn but trust me out there ur ppl exist who will love u for who u are. please dont hurt urself if only for their sake.
just bc other ppl r causing u pain doesnt mean ur so worthless tht u need to hurt urself too. no ur better than tht. ur worth it and there r ppl out there willing to listen and to care for u even if they dont know u yet. but trust tht they are there.
furthermore you need to realize tht u are not just capable of surviving. u r capable of living. u may be just a pawn in this game of chess but even a simple pawn can turn the outcome of the game around. u dont have to be just what ppl tell u you are
plus its okay to break the rules. idk what ur depression stems from but mine stems from too many rules. i heard this quote somewhere cant reacll who said it or what the exact wrording was but its along the lines of if they give u ruled paper write the other way. i have yet to take this piece of my own advice lol but im trying.
i hope u have a better time getting better than im having. i wish the best for u bc ik how depression can steal the love in ur heart ur friends ur life and eventually your soul. i hope u dont have to go through tht.
