With it being Mental Health Awareness Week, it seems fitting to write a blog based on this subject.
As we all know, social media can be a gift as well as a curse, but this week I have been very proud reading so many of my friends and followers truly amazing stories of their past and current struggles with mental health.
Through struggling with minor depression, I understand how hard it can be to openly admit that you need someone to talk to and you just need some help!
Even if you haven’t had to personally deal with mental health, I think we all know of someone who has or who has been close to losing their battle due to anxiety, depression, anorexia. I think it is truly inspiring how we are now opening our arms and our minds to understanding and listening to people’s individual battles.
One of the main things we all need to remember is you’re not alone. You will still have your bad days/weeks/months, but there is always a light at the end of the tunnel and there is always someone who loves and cares for you and wants to listen to your story.
As my friend said, ‘if you’re reading this and you’re struggling… better days are coming I promise.’
