Emotion level: 7
Mental level: 6
I’m starting something new. From now on the emotional state and mental state that starts off every blog will have a rating from 0 to 10. Level 10 will be the absolute best of moods, and level 0 will be the worst. In comparison to detail, I prefer this method.
TODAY I LEARNED: priests who violate the Seal of the Confessional are often excommunicated from the Catholic Church.
I’ve really been cracking down on mental health lately. After looking into multiple blogs, articles, Twitter accounts, and the like, I’ve never felt less alone in my life. It’s true what they say…everyone is living a story you know nothing about. So many people have their own problems and they work through them every single day with help from others. That truly amazes me. It’s easy for any of us to get caught up in our own lives and not realize that someone else is going through something much worse than you are. I certainly don’t want to discredit anyone’s pain, I just mean to try and put it all into perspective. It’s hard to see other’s pain when you’re going through your own.
The best and worst people suffer from anxiety, depression, OCD, bi-polar disorder, and many other mental illnesses. The sad thing is that so many people still have no idea just how terrible each of these mental illnesses can be. That’s why spreading the word about mental illness is ideal and needed in the world we live in. The idea of mental health advocacy really appeals to me, and it should. Mental health awareness needs to grow. We all need to know that mental issues are not part of a lesser concern. Those days are past us. We should all join together and share our experiences, our facts. Getting your story out there is what’s important.
