    DAM

    Let them flow. All those unspoken thoughts. All those suppressed emotions. All those unacknowledged difficulties. All those guilty secrets. All those painful memories. All those hidden corners. All those awkward truths. All those undressed wounds. All those uncomfortable ideas. All those latent longings and denied desires. All that water building behind the dam. Don’t wait for that pressure to build. Don’t wait to burst wide open. Let them flow. Let them flow. Let them flow. - Matt Haig

    “RAIN”

    You don’t have to be positive. You don’t have to feel guilty about fear, sadness or anger. You don’t stop the rain by telling it to stop. Sometimes you just have to let it pour, let it soak you to your skin. It never rains forever. And know that, however wet you get, you are not the rain. You are not the bad feelings in your head. You are the person “experiencing” the storm. The storm may knock you off your feet, but you will stand again. Hold On. - Matt Haig

    FOR WHEN YOU REACH ROCK BOTTOM

    You have survived everything you have been through, and you will survive this too. Stay for the person you will become. You are more than a bad day, or week, or month, or year, or even a decade. You are a future of multifarious possibility. You are another self at a point in future time looking back in gratitude that this lost and former you held on. Stay.
    ***Matt Haig, The Comfort Book

    TO REMEMBER DURING THE BAD DAYS

    It won’t last.

    You have felt other things. You will feel other things again.

    Emotions are like weather. They change and shift. Clouds can seem as still as stone. We look at them and hardly notice a change at all. And yet they always move.

    The worst part of any experience is the part where you feel like you can’t take it anymore. So, if you feel like you can’t take it anymore, the chances are you are already at the worst point. The only feelings you have left to experience are better than this one.

    You are still here. And that is everything.

    ***From the book, “The Comfort Book, by Matt Haig.

    The Comfort Book

    I recently opened up to my older sister about my mental health. She, like many others had no idea just how bad I was struggling. I really wish I had confided in her sooner as she has been so supportive.

    I got this book today in the mail from her. Has anyone read it before? I plan on starting it after I’m finish “The Midnight Library”, also by Matt Haig.

    I’ve found reading is a big part about of my recovery. Does anyone else feel this way? Is anyone else currently reading a good book? If so, what is it? Are there any books you recommend that has helped you in any way or that maybe got you through tough times?
