// R U OK? Day // this is one day that is very close to my heart. Ask your friends, family, co-workers, spouse.. everyone.. Be interested and just listen (not just today but everyday) You never know what a person is going through. A simple question could change their whole life. You don't have to fix it there's plenty of professionals that can help (Headspace, beyond blue etc)
I'm so thankful for all the amazing people who have sat with me in my depression and anxiety and just listened to the cry of my heart, loved me where I was at and encouraged me to be the best person I could be. I wouldn't be where I am today without help from others!
There is no shame in mental health.. just like a person with diabetes, a broken bone etc needs professional intervention or medication so does mental health. Its ok to not be ok 🙌
// Reflecting // I've been reflecting over my life and particularly the past few years. Things have been far from easy, smooth and everything you think adult life looks like. Financially I struggle through most weeks, emotionally I'm beginning to be more stable, physically I'm tired.. but through it all I have a peace that is unshakeable. Sure I wish things were different.. I'm sitting in the cold, rain waiting 20mins for a bus, to have a car would make some days easier.. I don't particularly like that I haven't found my 'thing' to do in life.. I feel lonely most of the time and keep a lot to myself. Anyways.. I'm still thankful, grateful, joyful and peaceful ✝️
