It’s easy to give up when things get hard.
It’s easy to feel defeated and hopeless when life becomes a struggle.
But just because things are bad now doesn’t mean they always will be.
A bad day doesn’t mean you will have a bad life.
You are wired for struggle.
You are a warrior and a survivor.
Struggling isn’t a reason to give up—it’s an opportunity to practice being brave.
No matter how difficult things get or how many times you fall, you have to find the strength within to pick yourself back up.
Because you can.
Because you exist, and therefore you matter.
Because people need you.
And because people care about you.
You keep pushing forward, every day, no matter how dark things seem because you have the opportunity to do so much good in this world.
To touch people’s lives, to make connections, to contribute to projects you are passionate about, to fight for the people you love, to make your mark on this planet.
You have far more power than you realize.
And you are so much more important than you know.
Don’t give up.
Things can and will get better.
You aren’t alone and you are so loved.

About The Movement:
My name is Daniell, and I am the creator of the Internal Acceptance Movement (I. A.M.)
Need support? Have a question?
The Internal Acceptance Movement is an online space that advocates self-acceptance, healthy body image, recovery from self-destructive behaviors and addictions, and the acceptance of all people, regardless of what they look like, who they identify as, what they have been through, and where they come from. I. A.M. is a space that offers support to those battling their inner demons and strength to continue fighting when all hope seems to be gone.
I. A.M. represents the idea that as human beings, we aren't defined by anything external, such as our weight, appearance, body shape, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, clothing choices, income, occupation, or background. But that instead, it's our internal qualities--our character and attitude, our passions and dreams, our soul and spirit, our heart and capacity to love, our goals and morals, and the way in which we treat others--that are truly self defining.
Whether you're battling an eating disorder, self-harm, alcoholism, drug addiction, depression, PTSD, low self-esteem, anxiety, self-hating thoughts, poor body image, or any other mental health condition or self-destructive behavior, I. A.M. exists to remind you that you are NOT alone in how you feel or what you're going through; that it's okay to not be okay, and that you don't have to face this pain alone; that things can and will get better; that healing and recovery are possible; that there is nothing wrong with who you are; the who you are is enough; and that you are deserving of happiness, love, and acceptance, always.
I'm here if you need me: whether it's support, someone to vent to, a question, or you just want to say hi--know that this is a safe place and that you aren't alone. If I don't respond immediately, know that I'm not ignoring you. I will message you back at my earliest convenience. If you have an emergency or feel that you want to hurt yourself, please, please call 911. I'm not a therapist or a mental health professional of any kind. If you're in danger, you need to ask for help from people who can adequately support you. Sending you love: Daniell
