This is the beautiful Hannah! Hannah is the beautiful face behind @thedifferentgirl . Today she is sharing her story about overcoming mental health with Jesus. Enjoy!
Hi I’m Hannah and I have mental health issues. Yes I did just straight out tell you that-no not because I want you to feel sorry for me but because these issues are not only my struggle.
You see I needed to share that first because it isn’t a part of my story that should be hidden. Maybe reading this you know me really well or you’ve never heard of me, I’m writing this to the person who feels your mental health struggles should be a hidden part of your story.
Some days I can wake up and wish I hadn’t opened my eyes, others days I could scroll through Instagram and play the comparison game, another day I could be obsessing over the fact that I didn’t turn the stove off.
Just because all this happens in my head doesn’t make it any less real.
And that's exactly why you think you can hide it right?!-because it's in your mind. Let me tell you you’re wrong, the all knowing powerful creator sees it all and he knows your story even before you knew it.
That means you can live bravely even when you know your mind is all over the place.
That fact gives you the freedom to live and thrive with your mental health issues and not let them define your story
I believe mental health is just as important as physical health because it's very real.
So walk in the freedom that is found in acknowledging the realness of it and the fact that it belongs to Jesus.
Use this part of your story as a way to display God’s strength.
You can come out of the dark and into the light because there is always hope with Jesus.
Just know I get you, you are not alone.
Much love and don’t forget to smile along the way.
Hannah aka The Different Girl
