These posts are meant to lead you be your most empowered self and help you overcome those things that are holding you back from reaching your goals. Some of this might resonate with you, or not, and I’m not here to judge anyone or their actions, only to give you something to think about.
Recognizing mental health in ourselves and others empowers us because we are able to be more empathetic and allows us to take better care of ourselves. When we can recognize the warning signs of mental health challenges such as stress, anxiety, depression as well as others is a very important factor in managing mental wellness. When we do not deal with our mental health challenges they can take over our lives (consciously or subconsciously) and interfere with not only our health and wellbeing, but also our life journey as well as our personal and professional goals. Preserving our mental health will help empower us to live our best lives. But it also requires to be patient and kind with ourselves. Everyone’s journey is different.
In the same way, being mindful of others’ mental health in our day to day practices will help us forge better connections with them. This includes being empathetic and being a good listener. It can also mean helping to get them the help they need while approaching these situations with all the love and kindness.
There are many mental health resources out there around the world, many of them free of charge. Check with your local search engine for some ideas of where to reach out. Never forget that you are worthy of all good things.
