I have been a part of the You Matter community for almost 3 years now, since the launch of the Fall collection in 2021! I discovered You Matter as I was on the TTC scrolling through Instagram, and then the ad popped up. It came at a time when I didn't know I needed the reminder!

The best word that describes my mental health journey is silent and undetectable. I was never open about the way I felt, and what was going through mentally at first, and now I’m being more open to that especially with my mom because I know all she wants is what’s best for me, and she is my best friend. 

I am still figuring my mental health self care out, and if you are too, then that is okay!! But as of right now, what I am doing is journaling, and finding things that I love to do, but also allowing myself to feel. I find that when you shut away your feelings, it begins to fester, and long-term it’ll get brought back up, and you haven’t allowed yourself to heal, and properly take care of your mental health.

 Know that you are not alone, and you will be okay even if you don’t feel it at the time, it does. There is no time frame for healing and know that it is okay to feel how you are feeling. I love you, and I see you. You Matter!! 

My favourite piece? To be honest, I would say all pieces are. Each piece has something special to give with the same reminder. But if I had to choose it would be when YM introduced the everywhere or the remind collection. On the cooler days when you get to walk around in a hoodie you not only get to tell the person walking towards you that they matter, but the people walking behind you gets that reminder too. You never know what someone is going through, or who is going to need that message.
