I often wonder if other people ever feel similar things that i feel. I know it might be silly to believe that i am the only person that knows what it feels like to be lost in a city that i know every corner of, but something just seems to be missing.
I know that sometimes reality is hard to come to terms with. The stress of life sometimes brings me down to a place i know not of. There is no signs on the road to guide me and even when i am surrounded by people, it seems impossible to feel anything but alone. Meanwhile, there are questions swirling around and inside my head, and the answers are not simply out of reach; there just are none. At least none that i can see. Those are the moments that i catch myself and my negativity. Because, maybe it is just as simple as believing that there is one. Maybe there is many. Maybe life is as simple as believing in something.
I always wondered how strong the mind was. Could it really save your life? Could it change your world into a peaceful place? I think the answer is yes. Yesterday, a thought crossed my mind that has crossed it several times before. I wondered how people could levitate. I always pictured Buddhists praying with their legs crossed and their hands curled up towards the sky. I always thought that somehow their god raised them up towards him. But, as i sat there at that moment, i felt like the whole idea of levitation was entirely metaphorical. It is just the idea that human beings can rise above anything. We can rise above the things that are beneath us and that having faith in a higher power allows us to do that. Then i waited a minute and shook my head and thought, no. It isn't about having faith in a higher power, it's about having faith in yourself.
I know that sounds cliche, but that thought alone- the idea that we can get through the most treacherous times by believing in a brighter day ahead- gets me through everything. It's the map that guides me when i feel lost, and i hope that you can all find a way to believe in that too, or if nothing else, a way to believe in yourselves.
My name is Morgan and I have a passion for writing, just as I have a passion for supporting those that suffer from various mental health concerns. I fully believe that each day is brand new and we can do with it as we wish. Mental illness is crippling, and you may lose the battle but that does not mean that you will lose the war. Keep fighting and know that you are not, and never will be, alone.
