Hi all, as we head into the weekend, I wish my Canadian pals a wonderful Canada Day on the 1st! I know my American friends are excited for the 4th celebrations too. As we celebrate those special occasions, I also celebrate a guest post experience talking about mental health awareness with D.G. Kaye.
It is summer here and the windows are open in my home as I type this post. I have so much to be grateful for, including the connections I have with all of you! Today I am over at author and blogger D.G. Kaye’s place to talk about mental health awareness.
As many of you know by now, I’m very passionate about this topic and have talked about it before, including the influence of Sylvia Plath’s poetry. I blog about depression and anxiety because these are topics I am all too familiar with personally.
For those of you who are new followers this may come as a surprise. It just goes to show that you cannot judge a book by its cover, as the saying goes. Talking mental health helps to dispell misconceptions.
While you might think, wow, she is so positive, it is the light that I find after spending so much time in the darkness. Today I have risen but continue to have days where the darkness does creep in. It is how I consciously change my thoughts, reach out for help, and continue to take medication that together provide my coping strategy.
