A Statement from Flannery:

"I wrote this piece in May of 2020—at the start of the pandemic. As I mention in the piece, my therapist at the time suggested that I write a letter to myself. I suffer from depression, so I tend to see things in black and white. In this piece, I’m giving myself a pep talk. I’m telling myself that I have the capacity to change and move away from destructive, self-sabotaging behavior. I published this piece to help other people who suffer from depression see things from a different perspective. In general, I like to shed light on mental illness in the hopes that the subject will become less taboo in our society."

 

Other credit: "I thank my former therapist for assigning me this exercise."
