Finally people are starting to pay more attention to mental health and the fact that everyone is simply not “ok” and just needing to “get over it.” Over the last few months, the idea of mental health has been playing a much more prominent role in my life (I’ll get into more detail when I am able to for various reasons) and I am relieved that people are seeing that mental health is a real issue and becoming an increasingly important one worldwide.
We live in a society where “busy”-ness is valued and where people are so busy trying to get ahead that it’s often at their own expense- physically, mentally and emotionally. We need to take time to evaluate what’s important and ask whether we are ok. With moms in particular, we are so busy looking after everyone else that our own emotional state is often overlooked … by ourselves. I often tell people that you cannot charge others’ batteries from an empty power bank and Moms, we are often the power banks of our families and extended families.
Just an introductory piece, but looking forward into chatting more about this and mental health in particular.
Love and light,
