The month of May is dedicated to mental health Awareness since 1949. I imagine the day when taking care of our mental health is a part of our life just like brushing our teeth, so that we do not need a month to remind us of self-help.

And before that day comes, self-care is still a luxury for many. Like the mother who believes her family's needs come first, the breadwinner struggling to make ends meet, the kid trying to meet the parents' expectation and the teenager trying to fit in. Unfortunately, any of us can be struggling with mental problems.

Self-care and self-love shouldn't be something we constantly feel guilty about. I first created the cute comics of the little fox and furry friends on Instagram to remind and encourage myself. Little did I expect that more and more people found these cartoon drawings uplifting and resonating.

I hope these animal comics do the same magic to you as they do for me.

Everyone's beautiful and there's no skin colour, eye colour, hair colour, body weight or facial features that are more beautiful than others
