Mental Health Awareness

5d54cd912a5b4ba3966e2cbd60ea8a13

Many people live with mental health issues and are ridiculed by some who don’t understand. Some want to and aren’t sure how to and others just refuse to try. “It’s all in your head.” or “It’s not real.” Some view us as freaks, a circus act to laugh and stare at. Others think we’re lab rats to analyze.

The illnesses we have are indeed in our brains, but they’re very real and not self-manifested. They are not something that we chose to have, to deal with. They also don’t make us any less human beings than those without them. They do not define us. I’m not bi-polar disorder, I have bi-polar disorder. There’s a difference.

To properly have a healthy and happy life when living with them is possible. Some need medication, others don’t. I did, for a time, but have learned how to live without them. For me, it’s a daily struggle, but I have a good support system and healthy vices, such as praying, singing, walking, writing, cleaning, etc that help me get though.

Having a good support system is very important and so is having things that can help you get back on track. It’s different for each person. Some like to workout, others like to watch comedy, and others still like to find a person they trust to talk to. Whatever helps you and doesn’t harm you or others should be encouraged.

If you don’t have a support system in place, try to find one. Start with family and friends, but branch out further if need be. There are groups in your community and online as well. Research them and know what you’re getting into and when you know it’s a trusted source, get involved. Vent, listen, encourage, and help one another.

Do not view yourself as inferior or unworthy of love, friendship, and a good life. Every day, I battle with the demons in my head that try to tell me I’m nothing. In the end, I’m reminded that I’m beautiful, talented, intelligent, and worthy of goodness in my life. I try to remind others of the same and not just those who have mental health issues, but everyone in my life.

Love goes a long way. It can overcome any obstacles and cure many ailments. What it can’t cure, it can lessen the pain and help you through. I pray that anyone reading this has people in their life that shows them that love.

Here’s to raising awareness, beating our illnesses, helping others who have them, and showing love to those around us.
