Holiday season is here. That means gatherings, family, friends, and expectations. That also means anxiety, depression, loneliness, and assumptions. Try to make time for those you care about and care about you. Yet, also know your boundaries. Know when it’s time to leave or end a conversation that may be triggering. Understand that your management of your mental health is a priority. So make an effort, but know your limitations. We are all fighting a battle.
“My condition isn’t something that can heal, but it can be easier to live with and it can impact my life less, even if the thoughts patterns won’t heal or be medicated away.” Thank you for sharing Jimmy H.
Being open and sharing is great for spreading awareness, but it isn’t necessary if it creates further issues. Never feel required to share your story. It’s yours and you have the right to share when you feel comfortable. I get some people intentions, and they mean well, but everyone isn’t ready. And that’s ok. Your past. Your journey. Your time.
