The Fog of Shame / You Are Not Alone Pt 2 / Mental Health Month
Calm it Down
Tuesday, 10 May
How often have you ever thought "I'm probably the only one that thinks, acts, lives this way." As much as I want to talk about it with someone, anyone, I should just keep it to myself, smile, nod my head and wait to breakdown behind closed doors.
It feels like we're carrying a heavy burden, but we don't want to tell anyone about it. We’re afraid that if we speak up, people will think we’re ‘not of sound mind’. So we keep quiet and carry on as best as we can.
But the truth is, this shame is crippling us. It’s holding us back from living the life we want to live. And it’s time to break free from it.
So how do we do that?
