I call this one 'brown and boujee'
Now on a more serious note, let's talk about mental health as it is mental health week. One in four people around the world have some sort of mental Heath illness that effects their quality of life. Now as someone who was diagnosed with depression by various doctors, I can tell you that living with a mental illness is one of the hardest things someone can do. It changes the way you live, the way you interact with people and loved ones, and it stops you from living life to your full potential.
There are statistics through the roof that show the increasing number of suicides within men just because we over look the fact that men have emotional and mental needs too. We forget that our parents are growing older as we are, and that life is getting to them too. Or how about the young boys and girls in school who are being bullied, self harming and are looking to commit suicide.
Mental health should never be taken lightly, it can either make us or break us.
The societies expectation of us having to be strong all the time is one of the reasons why most people bottle their inner emotions up. I'm all about self love and spirituality, but even I sometimes have to shout out 'oh just fuck it!' because I'm not happy all the time, and even I have issues inside which I am still healing from. Depression, anxiety, self harming and being suicidal has been such a huge part of my life that sometimes my mind takes me back there when I'm at my lowest. How easy would it be to just slip back into my old ways when I'm at my most vulnerable. Our thoughts are strong, they can either make us or break us, so every time my mind wonders, I use the strength inside to look at the bigger picture, look at my life which has many beautiful colours just like in this picture.
We forget to have real life conversations, we should be able to call up a friend and say 'I am not alright right now, I am not coping. I need help. Help me. Talk to me. What's going on internally right now is not something that I can deal with on my own!' ....(continued in comments).... #mhaw17 #mentalhealthawarenessweek #mentalhealthawarenessweek2017 #harnaamkaur
