Be Alright

I love Ariana Grande. When I was at my lowest point two years ago I could play her music and feel better. Her songs improved my mood, her lyrics lifted me when I needed it most.

The name of this blog, Be Alright, is named after her song “Be Alright” from her album Dangerous Woman. If you haven’t heard it, check it out here!

The chorus is what always gave me strength. The words, “Baby don’t you know, all of them tears are gunna come and go. Baby if you’re gunna make up your mind, we decided baby be alright.”

Those lyrics helped me to see that the state I was in would eventually pass. She also helped me to understand that I can choose to be alright (well kinda). It made me feel like Ari was cheering me on and telling me that I can survive this and eventually I can be alright.

For a long time I wasn’t into pop music but after being severely depressed, it was what kept me going. I’m going to make a playlist on YouTube and Spotify of the pop music that encouraged me to continue existing.

I hope you, my lovely reader, will be alright. –Megan

P.S. Here are some other encouraging Ari songs: “No Tears Left to Cry,” “Breathin’,” “The Light is Coming” and  “Break Free.”

The Beginning

Hello! I’m going to assume the magic of the internet brought you here today. image1

My name is Megan and this is my blog “Be Alright” where we are going to be chatting about the multifaceted topic of mental illness. I have struggled with depression and anxiety for as long as I can remember. Growing up in a world of Barbies, Polly Pocket, Digimon and Neopets there wasn’t anybody talking much about mental health. At least not in a way a kid like me could understand.

I want this blog to be a place where I can share things that have helped me throughout my journey but also I want this to be a place where you can share yours. I want this to be a safe space for all people to grow, learn and somehow get through in this world we live in.

I am aiming to post on a weekly basis to start. My next post will be a bit about my story. If I’m not vulnerable with you, how can you be vulnerable with me?
