It’s exhausting to fight that nasty yet deadly stigma as well as cope and deal with my parents (being affected/part of the stigma) and all else including fighting my own brain (that demon)!
If that isn’t exhausting enough for you, then I don’t know what is.
Your own mind is a sacred enclosure into which nothing harmful can enter except by your permission. – Arnold Bennett
But boy will it be so worth the wait and all else that I did and went through!
Grey matters, mental health matters and we all matter as equal individuals!
“Let us keep courage and try to be patient and gentle. And not mind being eccentric, and make distinction between good and evil.” – Vincent Van Gogh
It’s time to kick some stigma’s butt! Deseat is where I put dabutt! Lol
The people around you influence how you feel
Imagine yourself as a circle and other circles connected to you. Some of these are close and some are further away. Some circles are bigger and some are smaller. All of these circles represent people in your life. The closer the circle to you, the more contact you have with that person. The bigger the circle the more important that person is in your life.
You have control of these circles. If someone is kind and positive, then increase the size of their circle and bring them in closer. If someone is negative, then you can shrink their circle and place their circle further away.
Loved what Justin Trudeau had to say about mental health! Read in the link below!
“We all have a responsibility to raise our awareness about mental health. We must actively encourage honest and open conversations – in our homes, our workplaces, and our communities – about what mental health is and what we can do to increase our collective well-being.”
