Dear Future Katie – Letter To Get Me Through Future Tough Times

Scroll down to content
Dear Future Katie:
Here’s a few things I want you to know…
You struggle with mental health conditions. This is something you will have to deal with for the rest of your life. But always remember: Hard times comes and they go. You have lived this countless times and come through them each and every time.
You are one of the bravest and strongest people I know. You use your struggles to help others. But, know this… it is absolutely OK for you to reach out to others, too. You don’t have to struggle alone. Know who has your back and lean on them when needed.
You have your amazing tool box. Always know you can reach in there. Whether it’s looking at pictures of better times, reading positive things people have said about you previously, snuggling with your cat, or anything that helps soothe the bad days. I believe in you 100%. You haven’t lost this fight yet and I don’t see you ever losing.
You are so resilient and so determined to succeed. Sure, life knocks you down, but you have chosen not to unpack and live there. Life can give you a cactus but you don’t have to sit on it.
Feeling stressed? Don’t forget that you can always take a walk and clear your head. That has worked for you in the past and I bet it will continue to be a good stress reliever.
Most of all… be kind to yourself. You are only human. We all have our bad days. Just remember: The darkness doesn’t last forever.
You’ve got this!

My Depression Box

Well, here’s your box. Nearly everything I have is in it, and it is not full. Pain and excitement are in it, and feeling good or bad and evil thoughts and good thoughts- the pleasure of design and some despair and the indescribable joy of creation. And on top of these are all the gratitude and love I have for you. And still the box is not full
