“I have struggled with depression for many years now.
I grew up with a physically and emotionally abusive mother and I never learned how to deal with it in a healthy manner. Self-harm and music were the two things that got me through.
Now I have a daughter & I realized I need to get better for her. I never wanted our mother-daughter relationship to be like me & my mother’s.
I still struggle everyday and sometimes it’s hard to just get out of bed. Helping others along with music are now my way of feeling like my pain has a purpose.
If you are struggling, please know you are not alone and that there is always someone out there who cares about you.
Never give up, because you never know who you could inspire with your story.”
