I’m sure we are all aware by now that I struggle with my mental health. I am a strong advocate that the little things can make a huge difference. Which is where this post comes in. A few weeks ago I opened the post to find a personal letter and friendship bracelet from Letters.of.support (on Instagram). I cried, the letter was written with positivity surrounding suicidal thoughts. I couldn’t believe that someone would go out of their way to send me a letter to make my day that little bit better.

She sends a friendship bracelet with each letter, so if you’re ever feeling alone, you can remember that others in the world who are struggling also have the same bracelet on their wrist. I think this is a lovely idea.

Letters of Support is currently struggling with donations to afford the postage of her letters, yet she does not want to stop spreading support. I hope you can donate even as little as 65p/$1, which will cover one letter to someone who may really need it. This isn’t just a post to encourage you to help. I’m posting this so if you are also struggling you may benefit from receiving a letter, in which case head over to her Instagram, she can personalize your letter to whatever you may be struggling with.

I am also posting this to say THANK YOU! A single letter bought enough positivity to brighten my day completely. I smile each time I look at my bracelet, and feel a little less alone. What you’re doing is so selfless, inspiring and helpful that I hope you also continue to do this project. I appreciate you! I’m comforted by the fact there is still lovely people in the world.

Head over to ‘letters.of.support’ on Instagram to check out her project.

  1. Lovely idea. So glad you received the letter when it was needed.
    I believe there are always positive messages around us if we look for them.
    I was having a tough day and read this quote on one of the blogs I follow. It made me feel much better and I told Anne.
    Inner peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions.
    We may never know how much a word, a smile, a compliment, can mean to someone…
