Letter #151

Content Warnings: Anxiety




I hope when this letter finds you, you are in a moment of calm, one where you can take a deep breath and find peace. I just wanted to take a moment to let you know you’re not alone, even when it feels like you have nowhere to turn and have the weight of the world on your shoulders.


I have dealt with mental health and anxiety struggles throughout my time in college, and trust me when I tell you, it will get better! The first thing I want to stress is that it is okay to not be okay. There are going to be days where you will feel overwhelmed and weak even in the smallest tasks. On these days, I advise that you focus on what makes you happy and what really matters to you. One way I do this is through meditation and taking a few minutes to make sure I am present and appreciating each moment of that beautiful day. Talking to someone is another great way to turn your day around. No matter how you are feeling, there is always someone who loves you and is willing to talk to you. Never feel like your voice doesn’t matter or that it should go unheard. Another form of clearing my mind that never fails is just going outside. Taking a moment to hear the birds chirp and feel the warmth of the sun can immediately brighten your mood. And while some days may feel like the darkness will never pass, know that it always does.


So, remember to smile, be happy, and most importantly, keep going—no matter what you are going through!
