"my name is gabrielle and this is 'it’s okay to not be okay.'
i have struggled a lot with mental health issues. i have what is called schizoaffective disorder. society wants us, with mental illness, to suppress how we really feel and label us a 'crazy' when our emotions come out. i won’t be that way. my emotions are valid, no matter what the problem is. i’m allowed to cry. the world sees us who break down as weak, but it is just the opposite. i have been strong all my life and i now understand that showing vulnerability is not naive, but bold. i want to share my story. i want the world to know that i am not crazy. i am not violent. i am gabrielle. i am kind, i am smart, and i am beautiful, but i am not my disorder. my disorder does not and will never define me."

"with the cultural stigma that surrounds mental illness in the black community, the societal stigma that shuns mental illness in the population, it’s easy to think that the only option that comes with dealing with depression & mental illnesses is running" -seneca
