When life is dark the temptation to disappear, to hide, can feel overwhelming. And so LiFE Lesson #9 is a reminder to myself as much as anyone else: Don’t shut yourself away. Please! And if you’re worried that someone is doing just that, then it is easier than you think to reach out.
As a woman with a long history of mental health concerns, I understand how easy it is to close down. I will always appreciate those who have tried to help by stepping in; but I know that the fear of this happening can stop me reaching out. My healing comes from someone that wants to sit in the dark with me for a bit. Hold my hand while I try to find my own path out of the quagmire.
May is mental health awareness month. A topic close to my heart (and mind) So you can imagine how happy I was when playful promises got in touch. They wanted help to promote their #Promisetotalk campaign. Well, I just had to slip into something more comfortable and share my thoughts.
When you checkout on the playful promises website, there is an option to donate to Mind. And if you don’t fancy adding to your total, feel free to use the discount code LEAP10 which will give you 10% off your first use.
