Marissa P. is a community advocate for Mental Wellness awareness and consistently vocalizes the importance it plays on human life through media and arts. After a snowball of traumatic events Marissa found resilience through her struggles by finding value and reasons to why she had endured such moments within her life. She found the biggest reason being to serve others and to utilize her downfalls along with their lessons to help educate the community on the importance of recovery and mental wellness.
“And then it happens,
One day you wake up and you’re in this place. You’re in this place where everything feels right. Your heart is calm, your soul is at ease, your thoughts are positive, your vision is clear, you’re at peace. At peace with where you’ve been, at peace with what you’ve been through and at peace with where you’re headed.”
With that said; I believe there is a miraculous amount of value within the hardest moments of life. Without my personal past struggles and the pride I carry as a suicide survivor, I would lack the depth of appreciation I have for a sunrise painting the morning sky. I couldn’t admit any bit of that during those hard times, but I confidently reassure others that, in time, there is so much to gain from those days you don’t believe you’ll make it to the next. I am here, I am standing strong, I am proving every single one of my daily negative thoughts wrong with a smile on my face. I believe I have the ability to help heal the world, one mind at a time. “For what it’s worth, It’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if not, I hope you have the strength to start over.”
