Mental health Matters

If you are dealing with a mental illness, I’m here for you! Society makes it hard to feel like you can talk about mental health without being judged or embarrassed.

This is the reason I hid my mental illness for years and felt ashamed of the way I am. I finally realized that no one could understand a mental illness, unless they had battled one.

One thing that no one understands is that you can’t control a mental illness with an on and off switch. Your brain is telling you to feel these certain emotions and do these certain things because that is what your brain is use to.

A mental illness does not define you characteristics do. Someone with depression could be one of the sweetest people ever, make you laugh, and love everyone and a person with no mental illness could have a dull personality.

These are characteristics that actually matter to me because I would rather be friends with the person who is sweet, loving, and makes you laugh over the dull person.

Mental health is a topic that needs to be more talked about instead of pushed behind a curtain. My hope is the more society learns about mental health, then the more accepting they will be.

If society were more accepting I don’t think it would be as hard to tell your family, a guardian, a friend, or an adult close that you need help.

If you or a friend has a mental illness talk to an adult for advice. I hope this helps someone out there if they are struggling, have a mental illness, or needed to see they aren’t alone.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog, it means a lot!

Hi my name is Ashleigh. I was bullied a lot in my life and I was always scared to stand up for myself. I started battling mental illness at a young age. I also really love makeup! I’ve always wanted to start a blog, and decided to so, my story could hopefully help someone. I hope some of the things here help you or someone you know.
