What does an anchor mean to you?

For some, the anchor means hope…calm…stability. Think about those people in your life who you can turn to no matter what you’re facing...who are part of your support system. These are your anchors. As we face the many challenges that life brings, our anchors are important to help us steady ourselves, to ground us, to hold on to when the waters are rough.

On the flip side, the anchor can be seen in a negative light. For some an anchor represents a weight, dragging you down. A feeling that you can’t get your head above water, that it might pull you under.

People can feel this way from time to time. But when that heaviness really pulls you down so much that it affects your daily life–that’s when it becomes a concern.

What does an anchor mean to you?

"We know that it's so important to have some form of stability in your life, and we each found people in our lives to act as that anchor and help us learn to deal with our mental health issues. Feeling like you're drifting around alone without a purpose is something we have all experienced, and it's something we want to bring awareness to and to help people break away from that feeling, while also finding support and stability in people around them that love and support them, to reach out, and remind everyone that we are not alone."

Grant, Pray for Sleep
