You can reach me at any of these platforms;
Is this a thing?
Should I be worried about it?
What is it about?
How would you recognize it?
“According to MentalHealth.gov Mental health includes our emotional,psychological and social well-being. it affects how we think, feel and act”
What exactly are you referring to?
You wake, your body awakes
You sleep, your body sleeps/slows down its functions
But our Brain,mind keeps working at full capacity.
It is the most looked down on?
It is the most neglected entity/Topic,
Most people deny its importance,
Most people think is a sentence never to mentioned,
If you find yourself or friend retreating,
Acting different from their usual self,
Refusing to talk to anyone,
Refusing to go about their regular activities
Or speaks differently from the person you know,
Please ensure to seek/render some form of help.
How you ask?
A daily smile would be the first medicine.
A listening ear could also be a very good way to start,
A constant check on them would go a long way,
Help them understand they are not alone,
Help them realize that, life is not a journey of one person,
Help them realize that, everyone has a down time,
Help them realize that as humans there are trying times and overcoming those times ends up bringing so much excitement/accomplishment.
Speaking to someone about whatever it is,
Is always the first step to improvement.
Lastly, make sure every family member of yours or that individual is aware,
And they shower all the love that is possible on you or the said individual.
To anyone struggling with any mental health issue i would leave you with this quote;
The strongest people are not those who show strength in front of the world but those who fight and win battles that others do not know anything about.
