This speaks to me, and I hope that it does to anyone else who is struggling.
It’s so important that it’s worth repeating: Hold On, Pain Ends.
In the depths of illness and despair it can be impossible to believe this – I haven’t had hope for myself for a long time, but my heart desperately aches with tentative and what feels like foolish hope that this statement is true even for me.
I hope it’s true because my hope (for myself) is very frail indeed.
Anyway, I thought it was an excellent message for anyone struggling, so did a very quick painting that I hope you’ll like/find helpful.
Love, always, Molly xx
I think, when it comes to mental illness, it’s easy for many (the general public, mental health services, even family and friends) to see the diagnosis or label above and beyond, or even instead of, the real person. I painted this yesterday and like it as a little visual reminder that there’s colour, magic, spark, humour, fun, emotions, love, and so much more in each and every one of us – whether we are unwell or not. Illness is only ever one small part of a human , don’t forget that.
When all is gloomy in your internal world, don’t forget to look around, for beauty and light can be found (however briefly) in the smallest of things
