For too long this topic had been avoided and ignored, well it's time that changed! Nothing is worse than being trapped inside your own head, feeling useless and seeing no point. Nobody deserves to feel like that, what condition has the right to eliminate your happiness? That's right NONE! It's great to see this being highlighted more, and people getting behind it, but there is still a way to go. .
There is so much pressure on people to do amazing in exams, have a great body image and have the ideal career that it dominates life. While it's great to excell in exams and do well in work it should never influence your state of mind. You are worth so much more than that. It's vital you take care of and invest in you. Give yourself praise and focus on the things you've done, rather on those you haven't. You're human and can't do everything. .
Understand it's okay to not be okay. Accepting what's going on and talking to somebody about your feelings can be great for your mental health. It's more often than not the first step to getting better, and there are always people willing to listen. You may prefer to talk to a family member, friend or a health professional. Just please please please speak to somebody! It's nothing to be ashamed of and you're never alone. Find what works for you and take hold of it. .
Set yourself small goals, washing the dishes, going for a walk, cleaning for 20 minutes. It might seem daft but if you set a goal and achieve it, it can give you the motivation you need. Know you are bigger and better and have the power and potential to be a warrior! Keep your eyes looking forwards not backwards, remember your not going that way. I'm not saying it's easy, and battling with your own emotions is terrible, but you're NEVER alone! So please speak to somebody, set a goal, know your self worth and start the journey back home again! .
