What gets me out of bed in the morning is…
What gets me out of bed in the morning is my two nieces. Having several mental illnesses for as long as I can remember, it was always hard to find reasons to stay alive. Eventually I was allowing anyone to treat me how they wanted, since I had no respect for myself and no strive to live. After my first niece was born, I realized that I do not want her to see my way of life and think it is normal, or acceptable. So, I left my abusive relationships and started planning for the future, which is something I never even thought I would see! Now even on days where it is hard to get out of bed, where my mind is the loudest thing in the world, I know that as soon as I open my door I will hear those girls screaming "Good morning Auntie BB," and that is all I need to look forward to the future.
