What if when they click on the comment section, it's filled with positivity & love? It will be with Unveiled.
Anxiety disorders often co-occur with depression as well as eating disorders, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and others.
Unveiled recognizes that so many of these life controlling issues go hand in hand and all are made worse when we believe lies about ourselves.
Unveiled is always there for me when I feel down about life. When I go to Instagram, it's usually the account I most look forward seeing because it reminds me that I don't love myself enough and gives me something to work on. It reminds me that it will get better and it's given me a community of friends that are loyal and encouraging.
Unveiled came into my life right as I was getting out of an extremely abusive relationship. It meant so much to me being able to have a place where there were other people going through what I was going through. Being a part of Unveiled has helped me to realize that my worth is NOT determined by what I experienced in that relationship. Since learning to love myself again with Unveiled, I’m finally in a healthy, loving, stable relationship that I see lasting for a very long time.
