“With how advancing we are in this digital world of bullying prevention,” she added, “I still don’t know how such a page is allowed and am afraid my dear daughter will see it one day.”

“I have such a beautiful life and so many blessings, but I’m still struggling and need to sit back and work on my mental health. I feel like sometimes I only try to post the good stuff, but I think being open and honest will also help me heal through this.
‘I know I’m not alone. And I wanted you to know that you’re not alone either. I work through it and navigate how to heal on a daily basis.’
