Old ways will not open new doors, I am happy to have re-found the motivation to start writing again.
There is a popular phrase which tells us “Stop trying to calm the storm, calm yourself, the storm will pass”. A mindful piece of advice that had me thinking, sometimes in life you;
- Go full speed
- Live life away from what you truly feel passionate about
- Slip into a routine which offers a lack of fulfilment
- Spend time fitting into modern society trends
- Taking a step back from a passion or enjoyment that kept you focused or happy
Sometimes all these points will resonate or maybe at the moment one will. For me up until today, all of these resonated with me. For this reason I have decided to make a few changes in my life, one of them is speak up and out about Mental Health again.
Adam Spreadbury at the Bank of England said “Stories are really important. Stories get people to understand the real impact and see things from a different perspective. Stories give people courage to seek help and speak up. Stories create an environment for change”
This statement is incredibly powerful and a concept I started with a year and a half ago. For many reasons stopped for dealing with my own personal battles. Now, I want to go back to sharing my personal stories, I want to pledge sharing my own experiences may help others who might be suffering, to realise they are not alone. No-one is ever!!!! I want to give back and re-ignite my purpose to help others to not loose there battle.
This post is short and to the point.
I am going back to speaking up and out about Mental Health, hopefully you will support me in sharing my story. It’s time to change and I personally can’t hear another individual loosing their life to mental illness. It can be prevented….
For now, my ask is to please, please do not suffer in silence. If you fear, know or want to help someone seek professional help.
Thank you for reading, please I would love to hear stories and thoughts
