Mental Health Recovery Inspiration


I wish I were as strong as I will be tomorrow,
because today I am fighting a battle that will bring strength to the next day. I fight for myself and have found I have failed,
but I have learned what doesn’t work. I have learned what slipped past the fingers
of my mind. I wish I were the person I will have needed
to be today, because the me that comes tomorrow is the me that I aspire. I am not victory. I am not failure. I am sad, and I am torn down to the pieces
of my heart. I live inside the sick feeling in my belly. I feel guilt for the actions of my illness. I shame away from my reflection in the mirror. Today I am not strong. Today I have seen in my own eyes the resentment
towards the life that I breathe. I am undeserving. All my yesterdays were “wrong”. All my attempts to try again have been for
not. I read beautiful quotes and expressions that
inspire. I know of those who have risen from the dust. I may sit inside that sick feeling in my belly,
but I know somehow that there is a way out. I learned something today. In the sickness of my mind that torments me
more than any other foe. I learned,, tomorrow will come. As I drudge through each day the one thing
that is sure, is that tomorrow will come. I make a choice today, of who I want to be
tomorrow. I will take my failures and form them into
lessons. I will become the way out that brings daylight
to the darkness that seeps in from where the earth slips out of sight. I will be the me I needed today. I will collect my yesterdays with all their
mistakes. I take all these bruised and broken days and
turn them into light. Where the brilliant masterpiece at the ends
of the earth peeks over the horizon and overtakes the sky. I will be daylight. I will turn my days gone by into the beauty
in the sunrise. Today I know, like no other day before, that
I have the strength to survive, and the will to become more. I won’t give up today. Tomorrow is what I’ve been waiting for. If you enjoyed this video. Thumbs up! Comment! Subscribe! And I’ll see you next time.
