Happy World Mental Health Day

October 10, 2016. 

Today marks the 14th anniversary of World Mental Health day. Today is a day where we can, and should, address not only advancing mental health treatment, but also tackling the silent suffering that many individuals experience.

The ones suffering. They tread down a dark path, a path that should never exist in the first place. They hurt in a shadow, a shadow so looming it is difficult to even conceive of. They live a life, a life completely undeserving of such a title. They could tread down a brighter path, rid themselves of the shadow, lead a meaningful life. But they don’t …

… Because of one thing: fear. The fear that no one will understand, that no one will be able to make sense of their feelings, that no one will look at them the same ever again. It doesn’t have to be this way… if we all just make a little effort.

Lend your ears, eyes, and heart to everyone, as you don’t know who suffers in the shadows. Please take care of yourself and those around you. Avoid incorporating negative elements into your life. Do those things that bring you excitement, as well as peace. Share your feelings with your loved ones. Don’t be afraid to ask for some help every now and then. Stop concealing undesirable emotions. 

This is the only way.

Never forget that each and everyone’s happiness is precious, and that nothing in this world is worth losing a life over.

Happy World Mental Health Day, not just today, but every day.

Wishing you all the very best,
