I wish I didn’t have student loan debt.
I wish I didn’t have anxiety.
I wish I didn’t have depression.
I wish I could be good at something, at anything.
I wish I was good enough for my own liking.
I wish I did not feel so alone in the world.
I wish I could just take the easy way out.
Instead, I work daily so I can pay off my debt even when my mental illness has me down.
Instead, I use various breathing techniques to let the air stuck between my lungs out.
Instead, I fight the monsters in my own head to get out of bed.
Instead, I focus on learning a little about everything and re-learning what I already know.
Instead, I remind myself that I have it better than most and to be happy.
Instead, I force my introverted self to interact with as many strangers as possible.
Instead, I keep faith for a better tomorrow & put all my trust in Him.
