#worldmentalhealthday

Every single day should be WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY.

Since I was a teenager I have suffered from Depression and Anxiety. For years I hid this. Embarrassed for feeling this way. Too often hiding behind a smiling mask when I was crying inside. Now I realise it’s not something to be ashamed of. It doesn’t make me a bad person. It just makes me human.

Finding just one person who understands makes such a huge difference. Just one person who will listen. They don’t need to have any answers, you just need to feel like you are not alone in these struggles. Talking about how I really do feel has been such a huge stride forward.

Mental Health is a priority. Something I need to focus on every single day. I can find the time to exercise, so I can find the time to be kind to myself. I hope you can as well.
