We came across the #SAYITANYWAY campaign via Twitter. Through our browsing of the hashtag and reading the tweets we realized that the creator of this fabulous campaign was, Adam Grabowski. A stand up comedian you may recognize from his time on America's Got Talent. After the show is when he came out about his struggles with Depression & Anxiety. He has some fantastic things to say, if we can only listen.

His idea formulating in his mind, he began using his platform and love of comedy to spread this information and the #SAYITANYWAY campaign was born.
He has lived with these struggles for 10yrs now. He's experienced the shame and blame that we all have. In short, what he decided was enough is enough. "The point of the #SAYITANYWAY campaign is to get people to be open and honest about themselves and their experiences and their humanity," says Adam. Very well stated and relatable to anyone who has felt the isolation that comes with struggle. Whether it be mental illness, day to day stresses or just a rough day. We can all relate to the desire to share our lives with others in some ways, but the fear can all too often hold us down. #SAYITANYWAY be open and honest with yourself and do, say it anyway.
