Outside of the Ordinary

Normal People Only Sometimes I wish I was normal and that I could go through the doors everyone else can, feeling happy and confident.

But meds definitely cost money. Happiness takes determination. Determination feeds off of motivation.

Although I'm abnormal, and my world may be blue sometimes, I am still happy to be alive. Everyday is tough, yet thrilling. I'm abnormal but mentally healthy, and that makes me unique.

I love when I cuddle with my husband in the bed at night and know I survived another day by believing in myself, and the love of those who accept me for who I am.

My meds cost 💰, my depression cost ⏳, but ❤️ is free no matter which side of the door you are on!
