Mental illness tricks you into thinking you are not worthy of kindness—even from yourself. That needs to change.
I can’t be the only person who feels stressed and overwhelmed right before a vacation. Really, I’m not even that bad. I can usually let my responsibilities go once I get to the airport, but for some, it can take days to unwind and get in the vacation mindset—ultimately cutting your vacation short.
There is so much to do at Ohiopyle that you can’t do it all in three days (or rather shouldn’t if you want to relax at all).

I have to work every single day to be myself and to fight for my dreams, but it helps to write about my journey and to know that I’m not alone.
