Resiliency is not something we are born with, it is a tool kit of methods we use to help us get us after we are knocked down. Struggling with your mental health can feel like you are constantly being knocked down by your own brain, that small voice that tells you to keep going is resilience.
As someone who was diagnosed with anxiety at a young age, I have had to pull out my took kit time after time. I wanted to create something for people like me, who sometimes need a reminder that they will be okay, they will bounce back.
I love using crystals and have made a lot of my own jewelry with them. Every time I look down at the bracelet on my wrist or twirl the ring on my finger, I am reminded of every time I’ve risen back up and how strong I am. Jewelry is a symbol of my resilience.
