Mental Health Recovery
Recently I found this man’s blog. His name is James Edgar Skye. I wanted to share this post of his with you to encourage anyone who struggles with any type of mental illness. The road is tough for us, but when we get help, take medication if we need it, and have support, we CAN accomplish our goals.
I have been taking a correspondence course through the Institute of Children’s Literature since about August. I am halfway through it now! My sixth assignment is to write a story using the character I created in my fifth assignment. So my wheels have been spinning as I read other writer’s stories in my text.
I know most of you know me as a watercolor/drawing artist, however, when I began this blog over five years ago, I was focusing on writing. The blog helped to motivate me. I have wanted to be a writer for as long as I can remember. However, I have started many pieces, such as my memoir and a novel, that I have yet to finish. That’s okay. Right now I want to learn to write short stories for teenagers and write about serious issues that many of them face daily such as depression, anxiety, cutting, and various addictions.
So I encourage you to read James’s post as well and be encouraged. Struggling with mental illness is difficult, but we can still achieve our goals with a lot of hard work. Encouraging each other along the way is also key.
Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂
Thanks for sharing your life with us, James. 🙂 Please read on to get to know James.
