Back in June I wrote a little piece about my own personal struggles with mental health & accepting who I was for a community called KNQR (think conquer).
Co-Founder Nick Rutton liked my story & published it to their website.
These guys are all about ‘sharing to inspire’ meaning every single one of us has overcome some sort of adversity at some point in our lives & we all have something to share that could inspire someone else.
My motivation for sharing my very personal story was simply that it was just what I needed when I was growing up.
Meaning, I struggled a lot with who I was & a lot of the time I felt like I had no one to relate to. If back then someone a little similar to myself could of told me everything was going to be okay, then that would of made such a difference. So in a way I suppose I’m reaching out to my younger self, but I’m also putting my story out there for anyone else that’s struggling with the same things I did. It’s going to be okay.
I am a huge fan of KNQR & what they stand for – Not Giving Up, Being True to Yourself, Chase the Life You’ve Imagined, Appreciate & Konquer Each Day.
There are a whole host of different people on this site who have shared their own personal stories, I would really encourage you to check them out.
I’ll drop the link to the website below & the link to my story if you’re interested in checking it out.
Cheers & Happy Saturday!
