Since I was a child my unique name has made me feel like a special girl.

I know now that I’m older that I am special. I feel special. I have had experiences where I have been able to find opportunities to shine. I have done things I’m very proud of. I feel happier. I think about what I’m going to be doing tomorrow and the next day. I know now that there’s really nothing I can’t do if I believe in myself. I have to keep telling myself and reminding myself of that. The things people may say about me that are negative don’t have to negatively affect me. People can be very negative. I just know that my mental health is important to me. If I can give advice to any of the mental health bloggers out there is to try to find injectible medication that control your symptoms you have because of your mental illness.

  1. I understand where you are coming from Ayesha. I am happy you do not let negative words effect you. People can learn this from examples set by you when you blog about Mental health being Important. Thanks Ayesha !!

  2. You’re right about that. Don’t allow people hatred toward your growth and happiness to affect your everyday living. Block out the hate and keep believing in yourself and keep going. Your too far ahead to turn around and go back.
