Mental Health Awareness week runs from 10th -16th May 2021.
Mental health is so important, ao much so that I probably can’t really articulate in this blog post, the extent to which it is.
We’ve all been affected by mental health in some way, whether its ourselves, someone we know, or someone we don’t, like a celebrity we might admire.
It’s a part of all of our lives and yet there is still so much stigma surrounding it, its still not discussed enough in the same way we would a physical illness. Its affects can be just as devastating as something physical… if not even more so, especially to come to terms with.
You are not alone.
Your feelings are valid.
And it is ok not to be ok.
A smile can hide a multitude of feelings, but sometimes even doing that can be too much, and thats ok too. Talk, to anyone, someone.
Talking about mental health doesn’t have to been seen as negative, its just being honest.
& the world needs more of that. Just think, it could help you and do many others.
Talk. Take control. Keep going. Take it one day at a time. Do something you enjoy. If its bad now, it hasn’t always been. Focus on that. It will pass.
& this, for anyone who needs it, from the brilliant author Matt Haig.
Don’t suffer alone. It won’t always be an easy conversation but it will be so worth it.
I hope that people would know, but incase you don’t ~ I’m always here if you need a chat, day or night.
Until Next Time,
