Another shot from the makeup i did for the #insideoutchallenge hosted by @lilmoonchildd
One of the most challenging things about mental illness is that you cant see it and boy do we get good at hiding it.
@lilmoonchildd has started the #insideoutchallenge to help end the stigma on mental illness.
When i thought about this and my experience with depression and anxiety this was the first thing that came to mind, a dark scarred hand trying to drag me down. I always refer to my depression as my dark days and every now and then they take over, its becoming less frequent but its something ill have to live with it for the rest of my life. I was bullied for most of elementary school and this involved being ignored and shut out which caused a lot of anxiety in social situations whenever im meeting new people or when im with more than 1 friend, theres a constant fear that they might leave me.
It would be easier, not just for myself, but for everyone struggling if they could just be open about how they feel and what they go through. The best thing to discover, is that youre not as alone as you thought.
