Loving myself 

“In the midst of my battle with Major Depressive Disorder, I had given up on life completely. I lost all reason to live, the pain being unbearable, happiness seeming like a myth, and hope virtually nonexistent. Every minute of every hour of every day was a fight to stay alive. Then, unexpectedly, God decided to break the chains that had seized my heart. He healed me completely of my misery within 4 minutes, misery that had tormented my mind for 3 years straight.

Mental illness taught me how to love myself. It taught me how to love life, how to embrace the good times and remain graceful through the hard times. It taught me to cherish every smile and to see the good in the world. But above all, mental illness taught me that the healing power of God is real. It is all powerful and it is glorious beyond description. The Savior wants us to be happy. He wants us to be whole. We need only to let Him into our hearts, and He will do the rest.”

“My soul hath been redeemed from the gall of bitterness and bonds of iniquity. I was in the darkest abyss; but now I behold the marvelous light of God. My soul was racked with eternal torment; but I am snatched, and my soul is pained no more.” ~Mosiah 27:29
