Although I should feel comfortable being with people with my own ethnicity, race, and color…I honestly feel uncomfortable. I wouldn’t say it’s because I feel different, but because my purpose is different.
I want to be a researcher/scientist….because I want to be able to learn more about the mental illness to provide more resources and treatment for people who are suffering with a mental illness.
I want to be a therapist/doctor…because I want to be able to help others who are struggling through their mental illness or just anything in their daily lives
I want to be a professor/teacher…because I want to be able to educate others about the stigmas in the mental health field that mental illness exists and they are not detectable with the normal human eye.
Empathy is my strength and I over analyze myself because sometimes I fault myself for the unfortunate events in my life. But I try to surround myself with positive people to remind myself that living is worth existing.
