Talking is one of our many skills! Some people are better at talking than others. Some are shy at talking to people. That’s one of my many weaknesses. I’m very confident if I know the person but when I first meet someone I am not very talkative at all and my social anxiety decides to play up and it makes me feel like I am about to get attacked. But when I am on a high, I get over talkative and I can talk for hours on end. (Probably annoying to others, which I am sorry but I can’t help it!)
Why I think asking“are you okay?” is crucial?
Suffering in silence is a big thing, nowadays!
In all reality, you have no idea what someone is feeling inside by their facial impression. They could have a huge smile on their face but deep down they could be hurting and emotionally exhausted.
Suicide is a big killer in today society.
Asking that very simple question.
Are you ok?! Could potential save a life.
Talking about mental health does not just help other people with their own mental health’s but it ends the stigma a bit. Sadly, stigma will always be around but by talking about mental health’s and being non judgemental helps us and the people who are suffering from any mental illness.
We all have mental health which we should talk about it as it will break the stigma and get the right help what is needed.
Talking doesn’t just end stigma but it helps people and could save a life.
So, are you okay?
If not, please talk to someone who you trust.
I shall love you and leave you until my next post guys.
Just so you know, it’s okay not to be okay you know, even the happiest person in the universe has their bad days. You can get through this dark hole. I believe in you.
You are loved. You are worth the fight. You are more than your illnesses, you can fight this I believe in you. You are flawless. You are fabulous. You aren’t alone. You are amazing and I’m proud of you all.
You can beat these thoughts. I believe in you. I will always be there for you even if it’s on the internet or email or even in person one day. You are loved. You are needed in this world because you are YOU. You are bad ass for battling mental illness daily. I care about every single one of you. You are more than enough. You don’t need to please anyone else. God Bless x
