For those of you who don’t know Amy, let me give you some insight. She is BY FAR the funniest woman I’ve ever met. From her quick jokes to her brilliant asides, this woman is pure comedy. She taught me to treat others how I wanted to be treated. She holds everyone to the same accountable standard and she never waivers on what she believes is true. She’s a fighter. Don’t try anything with my mama, she’s a force to be reckoned with! She’s a 2 time breast cancer survivor. She’s looked death in the eye many times and told it to go f*ck itself. She tells the ones she loves that she was put on this planet to be a forklift. To lift those around her into the light. She does just that. Every time, she takes on that heavy lifting if she has the strength. She’s honest to a fault and crazy as hell sometimes but she’s my mother and she’s magnificent! I love you mama! You deserve the world. Let’s celebrate YOU! 🎉

*TRIGGER WARNING* #nationalmentalhealthday ✌🏾I don’t know who this artist is, but when I saw it, it resonated so deeply with me I had to snap a picture and save it. As a reminder. After I learned I’d gotten XMEN: Apocalypse, I was the happiest girl I thought I could be. I was living with my best friend from high school, researching this incredible superhero that I was going to throw myself into, was in love with my boyfriend at the time... all signs pointed to happy. But I wasn’t. I hated myself. So people told me to workout. Started training to get into shape for my new big role! Still saw myself hanging from my closet rod. Still wanted to die. Still felt like the world and the people around me were better off without me messing up their day or bringing them down with my relative woes. That I wasn’t worthy of their love or their time. “You don’t have to come by, I’ll see you soon!” Was my mantra, pantless from my couch. I couldn’t move. I was in therapy because, come on, what artist isn’t? I looked my therapist right in the eye and I told her I didn’t want to die. I don’t want to go anywhere. I want to stay right here and do the things Goddess put me on this planet to do. I want to shine my brightest for myself, because I felt dark and lost. This also wasn’t the first time I’d felt this way. I started taking antidepressants that week. I have been taking them everyday since then. They have saved my life more times than I can think of. If you are struggling, know that it’s not you. I had the tools to be happy, but my chemical imbalance blurred the ways for me to utilize those tools. It’s not always situational depression. “Man, I’m not getting any work right now and I’m about to be homeless, I’m depressed.” Sometimes everything can be coming up gold and you still feel like the depth of shit. Talk to someone. Reach out. You’re worth being in this world. We need you here. We need your kind heart and your bright light. We need you to outshine all the darkness this world has to offer. We love you, you’re not alone. You. Are. Worthy. Even when you don’t feel like it.
