Quotes Mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain, but it is more common and also more hard to bear. The frequent attempt to conceal mental pain increase the burden: It is easier to say “My tooth is aching” than to say “My heart is broken”. I wish people could understand that the brain is the most important organ of our body. Just because you can’t see mental illness like you could see a broken bone, doesn’t mean it’s not as detrimental or devastating to a family or an individual. You keep a lot to yourself because it’s difficult to find people who understand. Everyday is a second chance. Ignore those who say just get over it. Healing is a process. Don’t be ashamed of your story. It will inspire others. Never apologize to others for their misunderstanding of who you are. And if today all you did was hold yourself together, I’m proud of you. I have endured pain and loss. I have felt broken. I have known hardship, and I have felt lost and alone. But here I stand, trying to move forward, one day at a time. I will remember the lessons in my life because they are making me who I am. Stronger. A warrior.
