Okay, so is okay to share your thoughts and feelings either through blogging or social media? Is it okay to be so open about mental health? Do we open ourselves up for people to be hurtful maybe?

I think no, sharing I think helps a burden, lessens the load and becomes inspirational to those who suffer in silence, those who see no hope and can’t see through the trees in the wood, to me talking about it helps me and others. To know it’s okay to not be okay and it’s okay to open and talk about it.

Many celebrities do the same and many people see them as a hero for doing so, after all it takes great courage to open about it when your in the public eye. After all celebrities are still human regardless of their status in society. We are not all immune to it.

It took me a really long time to seek help properly, it took me a long time to talk to my husband about it. I use to push people away with my behaviour because of mental health and I don’t expect them to funny understand how I’m feeling but to have some compassion and have a shoulder to cry on when the going to gets tough. Luckily my husband it exactly that and has the patience in the world, he still has his limits though. We all do.

A problem shared is a problem halved, it makes it smaller, bite size even. Talking about it to me is now important more than ever. It never use to be, it’s okay if you don’t want to talk about it, everyone has their own way of dealing with a mental health issue, just don’t suffer in silence. Loneliness is one of the worst things to feel in the world, the isolation that comes with mental health is suffocating.

I want to inspire…..

  1. Interesting point of view! There are so many things I’d love to write about, but don’t, because my family doesn’t want me to discuss mental health or “issues” online. Because of what others will think. My thoughts are so mixed on the issue. Really liked the way you worded this. xo
