Today 

Today I will not hide my disability. 

Today I will not mask the involuntary arm and leg movements. 

Today I will not try to stifle the random words that pop into my mouth at in opportune moments. 

Today I will not hide the facial tics. 

Today I will not hide my scars. 

Today I will not hide my anxiety. 

Today I will not hide my mental illness. 

Today I will not pretend that everything is okay just to make those around me more comfortable. 

Today I will let the world see the ugliness that is my everyday life. 

Today I will let the world see the ugliness that is me.

  1. Mental illness can be ugly and terrifying, but it is not all of you. It is ugly, you are beautiful, always have been.
