This month is very important to me as it is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth
I recently had the privilege of collabing with The Writing Wall in being a mental health guest blogger over on their blog. A huge thank you to Stacy for including me in this awesome project. 😊
Below is a snippet of the post I wrote for The Writing Wall . Head over to their site to check out the entire piece. 🤓
“This stigma that is still very much attached to mental health is the same reason why it is important that we continue to take care of our mental status and why it is so very important that we share our stories, experiences. We need to have the deep, sometimes uncomfortable conversations because the moment we stop talking and taking action is the moment that the stigma wins.
There is only one You…You only have one body, mind, and heart…remember to take care of all three.
P.S. We are all different, which is what connects us. We all have something we’re dealing with; be it physical, mental, or emotional. No one is flawlessly perfect. Never be ashamed of who you are or your story. Don’t let a cold world kill your kind heart.
Be bold…Be brave.
Live hard…Love harder…”
