Mental Health Awareness

Your struggle is part of your story. “Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways.” Emotional pain is not something that should be hidden away and never spoken about. There is truth in your pain, there is growth in your pain, but only if it’s first brought out into the open. Although many of us are embarrassed of exposing our problem.

We hide all our scars with an “I’m fine.” Deep down inside we are crying for help. Our brains are constantly spinning, manic and anxiety ridden. I’m diagnosed with bi-polar and depression but seen by others as a happy man. You might think you do but you don’t know my story, my struggles, and the demons that I combat.

It’s my life, my struggles and I can’t help it sometimes. I’m just grateful that God kept me alive for me to tell it. I owe my today to my yesterdays. We live with regrets and probably will die with them too. There are two types of people in this world: the ones that are doing it and those busy saying they can’t do it.
