You Can't Pour From An Empty Cup!!


May is mental health awareness month. Although we are highlighting awareness this month, let's not forget that people struggle everyday with mental health illnesses. You are not alone;although often times it feels like it. I think everyone has struggled with their mental health at some point in their life. We have all struggled with something-the difference is how we handle it. The first time I realized I needed help was so scary. I hid it because I thought people would see me differently. But I learned over time that it is okay to not be okay. It is okay not to be strong all the time. It is okay to ask for help.

As a woman of color I grew up thinking that I must be strong all the time, if not I would be viewed as weak. But that is not TRUE- what makes you weak is not admitting that you need help and admitting that something is wrong. I no longer care what others think about me, I care that I am finally taking care of me. I am standing in my truth!! Who else can stand with me??

Share your perspective.......


Sincerely,

A woman of strength
