Grocery Cart

Photo taken by contributor Morgan, a 21-year-old woman living in California. Morgan has suffered from bipolar depression and anxiety for many years. She experienced her first anxiety attack at the age of 10, and it has been a battle ever since. Her mental health improved greatly after the birth of her daughter, when she felt true unconditional love and acceptance from someone. Morgan thinks very passionately about photography. It’s so much more than just taking pictures to her, it’s a coping mechanism

About this photo:

“I’m empty inside.
But I still get used.

I’m empty inside.
But I still get pushed around.

I’m empty inside.
But I’m expected to be full.

I’m empty inside.
But people still expect things from me.

Sometimes I’m not empty inside.
Sometimes I’m filled to the brim.

Only to be emptied out again.”
