~A war child~ Something extraordinary has happened. A German journalist contacted me; she wants to interview me about my writing. I started to write because I wanted you to know about the unsung heroes of this crazy world of ours. I wanted to be part of the mental health army; to help destigmatize mental health. My dream is to set up a trust fund which would enable me to set up a free counselling program for our veterans in Bosnia, for their families and especially for their children. I would be the happiest person alive if I succeeded in this.
I feel so strongly about counselling. Counselling has helped me immensely; I can’t advocate it enough. Trauma and bereavement counselling has been one of the hardest things I have ever had to do, and one of the best things in my life at the same time. My counselling has changed my life forever. It allowed me to heal, to properly say goodbye to my long lost loved ones, it allowed me to move on and have a proper closure. I am much nicer person now, thanks to my counselling.
If untreated, trauma leaves lifelong effects on a person and their loved ones around them.
I understand the enormity of my dream, but I can start small. I can first start in my home town, and then expand my counselling mission further. I am terribly stubborn, and I can be pretty persuasive. I can do this!
I would do absolutely anything and I would speak to absolutely anyone, if this meant that we would be able to provide trauma, grief, bereavement, PTSD & maternal mental health counselling. I am getting terribly nervous about this interview, but at the same time, I am immensely excited! #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #ptsd #health #counselling #psychology #wellness #mindfulness #selfcare #selflove #mumlife #dadlife #momlife #mummyblogger #mamablogger #mommyblogger #love #kindness #writer #serbian #wartrauma #goodpeople
