I love this project for several reasons . First of all, it was created by someone that I have been working with in her quest for freedom from tremendous suffering for several months now. It is one of the greatest joys that I know to see depression slowly melting and the twinkles of life and hope slowly beginning to glow once again in someone’s eyes. I don’t mean to put words in her mouth, but I think she is beginning to see the greater picture of everything she has been through. “Why me?” is not a question that can ever be answered, but “What can I do with it?” is a question that brings an enormous sense of purpose and beauty to one’s life and allows you to go on an adventure not otherwise possible. There is an epidemic not only of depression and anxiety, but also self-harm, especially in young people. Most of them hide it in their personal life and then retreat to places on the internet where they gather and let their pain out. Most of it is really graphic, triggering, and just tragic. It leads them nowhere except to darker places. This project is an interactive safe space as well as a chronicle of her own journey and triumph over tremendous obstacles. Overcoming these struggles is not about coping, it is about growing, and I really celebrate how brave she is in sharing her story and inspiring others to do the same. http://www.projectbadass89.tumblr.com/
