simonasimone Together we must work to break the stigmas behind mental illness -- though science is working towards understanding the complexities of our brain, there are still many more mysteries than answers. Although genetic predispositions, socioeconomic factors, prenatal development and many more factors all play a role, these conditions do not necessarily discriminate. Anyone, can at one point or another succumb to the crippling blows of a mental illness.
Struggling with my own mental health has not always been easy, it has been a long and at times, debilitating road. I made a conscious choice to heal myself through education and support, embracing the eccentricities that come with it, as well as the lows. To be honest, all of us can be diagnosed with something, we are a broken society and the evidence is everywhere... but when these illnesses take over and consume your life -- that is hard for anyone who hasn't felt or seen the crippling blows, to relate to.

But we can all show compassion. We can stop the stigmas. We must seek to understand and seek to abolish judgement. Mental health is such a broad term, yet our mind and state of self is the core of what makes us human. A healthy mind above all, is what I strive to nurture... without that conscious attempt to heal yourself or ask for help, we cannot move forward. Public initiatives like #BellLetsTalk are working towards setting a platform where we are not ashamed or judging. I hope today we can all spend some time either educating ourselves or just simply reflecting -- making a promise to show more compassion and learn some of the facts that affect millions and disable many from living happy, healthy, meaningful lives -- something we all deserve!

violetirislove Rescue Remedy ran out. Store assistant recommended this. But realised too late spray contains alcohol..! So guessing after spraying onto cotton puff, must shake to get rid of alcohol fumes before putting in cage near cats for calming.
