Awakening is a very personal piece dedicated to a few concepts that have helped me enormously in the mental health realm growing up - including being present, holding a positive outlook, getting outside of my head, and having the dedication and courage to take the first step in improving myself. Suicide, depression, low self esteem, low self worth - these are all reactionary symptoms of a disease that many of us don't know how to deal with.
