WORD!!! Finaly 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👌🏼#speekup #word #respect #quotes #trendy #trend

When I started barbering there was 3 things I knew, for the most part, would be abundantly clear. The first is that I loved doing it, and in the last 10 months that passion and love has only grown stronger.
The second was that I knew part of the reason I loved it was due to being able to talk to men about one of the biggest issues we face - our mental health. Because of my own journey with mental health, trying to help others is something I'm very passionate about. Barbers are very high on the list of jobs in which someone will open up about suicide, depression and anxiety.
Which brings me to my third point, one that I am openly admitting I have fallen short of the mark recently, as life always seems to come crashing down at once, and I all to often try to bottle it all up until I spiral down a path that has led so many men and women to breaking point - our own mental health.
My reason for posting this, is a way I can keep myself accountable for my mental health. And not only that but I want to help others do the same.
We often have so many people around us, friends and family, but sometimes it feels like they aren't truly there. That's because we have a funny way of showing it sometimes, and sometimes saying "I'm here to chat if you need" feels fake. Well the hardest truth Ive realised is that is all part of the mindset we need to break out of. Sometimes we need to say to someone, "YES! I need to talk." But talking about your problems is only half the battle. The reason Ive posted a photo of a book, is because I'm realising that I need to take a step back from technology, social media and the like, to focus on MY mental health. Reading is something I haven't done since I was a young kid and too often I spend my time on an endless scroll, playing videogames, or watching Netflix.

To my barber brothers and sisters, I want you to know I'm here to talk, even if I don't know you well.

So please, let's get a conversation started together. Share this post, and tag a few of your barber mates, to let people know you're here to talk, and to ask them what they are doing to make sure they look after their own mental health, so that we can keep each other accountable.

I will miss you. See you soon ❤️#bestcampever #SpeekUp #Englishcamp #Poddabie

There are so many people out in this world that get bullied and messed with just because of the way they look or for what they like #stoptheviolence #speekout #speekup #speekupforthosewhocant

@shahidul001 is an amazing photojournalist that has been detained based on remarks he made during protests in Bangladesh. “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.

Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.

The hottest place in Hell is reserved for those who remain neutral in times of great moral conflict.

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.

We will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.

Pity may represent little more than the impersonal concern which prompts the mailing of a check, but true sympathy is the personal concern which demands the giving of one’s soul.

Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will.

The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was: “If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?” But… the good Samaritan reversed the question: “If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?” In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.

He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.

History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people.

Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.” - Dr Martin Luther Kind, Jr
