#WorldMentalHealthDay 2019

It’s #worldmentalhealthday and the past year has been the most informed year of mental health for me. ⁣⁣

Note: informed. Not easy. ⁣⁣

I learned what the enneagram was. ⁣
I explored emotional intelligence.
⁣I lost two meaningful humans to suicide. ⁣
I chose to try therapy as an adult. ⁣
I took tests for depression and anxiety. ⁣
I asked a doctor for help. ⁣
I sobbed when I took my first antidepressant pill. ⁣
I told more strangers, friends, and loved ones about my grief than I thought I ever could. ⁣
I began writing my first manuscript (aka bravely/shakily claiming my story). ⁣
I started asking about mental health practices during interviews. ⁣⁣

I feel an overwhelming and humbling gratitude to everyone in my life that has held me – either in warm hugs or words – this year.

⁣⁣If you need someone to talk to about mental health, I’m happy to listen and offer resources. Or even just my own warm hugs.
