It’s the end of May and I couldn’t let the month go out without highlighting Mental Health Awareness Month. I’m a huge advocate for Mental health and everything that falls underneath that umbrella, so this post is something I felt compelled to write. I am very familiar with mental health issues and am so proud of the leaps that society has taken in terms of creating awareness, slowly squashing the stigma attached and supporting those coming from all different walks of life who need it.
I’ll mention this at the start of the post just in case you don’t make it all the way down to the end. If you are someone who battles with depression or anxiety please know that you’re not alone. Please seek guidance, find a support system and above all else be kind to yourself and stay strong. You are valued. You’re important and your existence is worth fighting for.
I’m starting a new series on this blog called “In real time”. Concept; I sit down, Streamline my mind, write emotively and hit publish. I will, of course, proofread my pros but other than that no tweaking. I love organic content in any form and feel as though in today’s society with social media heavily curating everything, I find myself asking “Where are the real people at?”. If you vibe with me on this one please send me a tweet ~ I could talk about this all day haha!
Just over a week ago I posted my first blog post in over a year and mentioned that I’ll be sharing with you parts of my story. I have several bases to cover so I’ve figured out that the best way to do that, is to let it all slowly unravel through my content. Let’s call this 1st base; Mental health.
