I realized some of my dreams but some I had to let go of.

I know this might sound cliché but I never recommend anyone to fall in someone’s footsteps. I just had so many beautiful surprises but I would study English and Creative Writing again. I also love art and artists. I feel like creativity is the best gift for one to have. Things in my life were always very different from maybe other kids but this one is my selfie. I always thought there was so much more to mental illness and creativity.  I learned about famous people who were affected by mental illnesses but even though I know and understand what this experience of madness is really like I never judge anyone’s pain as less than my own. I have a difficult illness but I know I will never give up hope.
