I’m a wife and I provide a comfortable home with dinners made in the evening, and the bed made, and a clean environment. I am a friend to my husband and listen to his concerns and help to be a caregiver. I am his other half, his loving companion, and enjoy being his wife.
I am a mother and a Mimi, and I am there for the concerns of my children and grandchildren. I will always be there to provide comfort and guidance. I am there as a friend and a listener. I will always care for and give hope when it is needed. I will show my faith and forever be their protectors.
I am a friend who can be trusted, and will try to do my best to be an advocate and supporter of hopes and dreams. I will listen to concerns and joys, and be with my friends during good and at turbulent times. I am there for times of need and pain. And I will rejoice in the accomplishments.
I am a warrior, and a fighter of mental health equality. I have strength that others know nothing about. I have fought my own demons, and I have conquered hallucinations, delusions, and paranoia. And I have fought through fear for years upon years. I am strong and I am a fighter. I believe that the mind deserves the same attention as physical illness and health.
And I am me. I am unique. I have compassion and am trustworthy. I love with my whole heart and will fight for those that I love. I need to replenish my spirit when time allows, or make the time to do that. Making time for me is essential to who I am, and to how I can be of service to others. Recharging my own spirit gives me balance.
