It's ok to not be ok...

Hello everyone!

As it's Mental Health Awareness Day, I thought it only suitable to write a blog post on this issue. It's an issue that I feel very strongly about, and I think it's something that more people should talk about. I've written my fair share of mental health posts on this blog, so you probably know how I feel about the issue.

People talk about being sick all the time. If you have a cold, you'll tell someone about it. If you have a stomach ache, you'll tell a doctor about it. If you have an issue with your mental health, however, most people stay quiet. And that's not good. 
It's ok to not be ok. If you're feeling sad or anxious, don't be afraid to talk about it. Whether it's with a friend or family members, or just someone who is happy to listen, talk. You may find that you'll start to feel better. 

I know I'm not doctor or professional or anything, and sometimes I don't talk to someone about how I'm feeling, but when I do I feel ten times better. 
Something that has helped me is an app. The 'trustTalk 247' app was set up to help people who suffer from mental health issues. There's a direct link to Console, where you can talk to someone about how you're feeling. The part of the app that I have found the most helpful is the 'Mind my Mind' section, where there's a different quote every day directed at mental health. I'm a sucker for an inspirational quote, so obviously this is something that caught my eye immediately and helped me a lot.

I would suggest you download this free app (or any other app like it if you would prefer). Something as simple as this can go a long way to help you.

My point of this post is to just talk to someone. I read a quote today that sums this up perfectly so I think I will end with it: 
"When I pushed people away, it was actually when I needed people most."

Until next time.
