Sometimes what we need to hear is some supportive words that can lift up our spirit and mood so we can get through the storm that is raging on inside of us. It really is not fun having a mental illness. Many of us don’t choose to live with it, we just can’t avoid it. Since May is the Mental Health Awareness Month, I think it is just great to share some inspirational quotes about mental illness that will help you cope with your condition.
The Best Inspirational Quotes for
Someone with Mental Illness
If you live with mental health problems, it’s easy to feel alone. Sometimes, it seems that no one knows what you’re going through, and help — or even just someone who cares about you — is impossible to find. Ironically, of course, many of us live with — or have experienced — mental disorders such as anxiety disorders and depression.
Hopefully by reading these inspirational and supporting words, I can brighten up your day a little.
