May is Mental Health Awareness Month.
I want to be very clear- I’m not a mental health professional.
I am; however, someone who has continually worked through anxiety and depression.
Because of my journey with anxiety and depression, I’m a big believer in sharing experiences. I believe that sharing experiences can be a source of healing to the person “going through it”. In my opinion, it can help to hear stories from those who have gone before you. I know, because it’s one of the things that helped me on my journey.
One of the many sayings I’ve heard over and over was: I wish I knew, then, that other people went through x,y,z.
Thankfully, talking about Mental Health is becoming more and more accepted.
This month, I’d like to share and re-share my journey.
I’d love to share resources.
I’d love to share hope.
If you or someone you know battles with Mental Health, know that you are loved. You are not alone.
