Why I'm Not Afraid To Talk About My Mental Health Online

March 23, 2017



I am not afraid of being judged, believe me I've heard it all. Crazy? F*cked up? Attention seeker? Dramatic? blah, blah, blah.


I know that many people don't want to hear me talk about my Mental Health, (or even Mental Health in general) so they choose not to follow me or they even unfollow me. That's totally their choice, obviously. But, it's also my choice to decide that I don't need them in my life (or anywhere near me as a matter of fact) if me talking about MH bothers them.


Since I've been speaking openly on Social Media about my Mental Health, I've had a lot of unfollows. But I've also had a lot of follows too - nearly doubling my overall online following in three months. (Not that this is about Social Media.)


My point is that there are plenty of people out there who care, and who want to hear what you have to say. I've had dozens of messages encouraging me and telling me how I've been helpful. So, forget about the people that don't want to hear it. If they're not interested in what you have to say, and don't care about a real problem then they're not even worth the thought.


Never be ashamed of who you are or what you're going through. Be proud of how strong you are, and remember you can inspire others by sharing your story! We've got stigmas to destroy and people to help, so f*ck the people that don't want to hear it and remember the masses of people that do!
