Are you OK? (and its alright if ya not, OK? Lets help)
So, as you are probably aware – its world mental health awareness day
Im sure you have seen some really personal, moving and emotional stories – and probably some truly upsetting ones
Sadly some folks never get the help they need – much as a few friends of mine didn’t – and they are no longer here
So I have sat here for an hour or so, thinking:
“What should I write?”
Do I do some practical tips…
Maybe I share a story of my own issues with mental health…
Perhaps some ‘masked’ (no names/genders/identifiable info) stories..
None of the above sat right with me
So this is what I wanted to do:
1 – If you have a story of how you overcame your mindset/mental health issues and are willing to share it?
Please share it
Sometimes just seeing how someone else overcame it can make a world of difference
2- If you have any practical tips?
Please share them
This group is more than I can ever be – because its a community
Help your fellow humans with your knowledge ;because its the right thing to do
3 – If you’re struggling?
Ask for help
Seriously this group is compassionate and caring as fuck
You would be blown away by the support the members give in here, plus I’ll tag in my experts from ‘Espresso With Dan’ who are on hand daily over there
We can all help one another
Theres no need to be alone eh?
Y’all not broken, ya just need a hand right now
I’ve been ‘not ok’ many times in my life – and if it weren’t for my folks/team/mentor/friends and my own stubborn/spiteful nature?
Really, I wouldnt be here now
Not being OK is OK
Staying not OK – long term – isn’t
So, lets share, help and give a hand to those that need it
Equally if its too hard for you to share, welcome – for today – to DM me and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can
We got this aiiiight
