I'm no life expert
Recently I've found a hobby of taking my photographs and adding my own quotes to them. It's helped me sort out of my mind, thoughts, & own ambitions. I love pictures and I would love to share my art with the world. However, I'm no philosopher. I've made countless mistakes- some very big ones in my short 23 years on this planet. In fact, the only real advice I have to give is based off my own mistakes, failures, and heartaches.
I lost my best friend & cousin (practically a sister) to suicide a little over a year ago. Her death opened up the real (and scary) world of mental illness to me. I've always had a dark side that battled a bit of depression. I experience high highs and low lows. My mood changes quite easily. I think I've come to find a balance in myself and to look within in order to overcome these obstacles. My brain fights with itself constantly. One part keeps it's feet on the ground and is always wanting to take the correct path and make good choices. The other one is fleeting and dramatic, always ready to do something crazy or spontaneous- often regrettable experiences. It's a war zone in there.
So these quotes I've created are mainly for myself. It's a way to sort out the good from the bad. If you happen to feel they relate to your own life then great- I would love to hear your own stories and ideas. I'm no expert. I'm always trying to figure it out and make progress. But life is uncertain and maybe if we all learned to go with it a bit more we would end up in magical places.
