Happy Friday! Before we get into this week’s links, I wanted to say how thankful I am for the support you’ve given me. I spilled my guts here this week and so many of you commented, shared my post, and reached out to send your love and share your own story. None of us is alone in sometimes (or most of the time) feeling like we’re not enough, but we’re stronger together and we heal when we talk about it.
I actually didn’t realize World Mental Health Day was the day after I published that post, but I’ve seen some great posts and resources around the Internet this week that I wanted to include in today’s link love.
My sweet friend Lauren wrote this insightful piece for To Write Love On Her Arms about supporting a partner who struggles with depression. I get asked about this a lot, so I’m glad to have this to share now!
Similarly, I loved the language in this Buzzfeed article on tips for talking about mental health with someone who has depression. There are some great phrases to mentally bookmark for the next time your loved one is going through it.
Buzzfeed also put together a bunch of celebrity quotes on mental health that I found really powerful.
This video in honor of International Day of the Girl is one of my favorite things I saw this week.
This was a big week for feelings, huh? I loved this piece my dear friend Taylor wrote for National Coming Out Day.
If I copy this perfect casual fall outfit will someone take me apple picking?
What about this one?
Welcome to hydration station.
Valery’s GLOW-inspired Halloween makeup look is EVERYTHING.
These booties are fall’s hottest and most practical trend.
On wanting to be noticed (and why that’s okay!).
Lots of new arrival cuteness from cupcakes and cashmere.
I can’t decide which I love more – Alissa’s outfit or her words on confidence + doubt.
