Our minds need a little help sometimes, and it’s okay!

I’ve been struggling with depression the last few days. If I’m honest with myself it’s been in waves since last September. I’m hoping that with my new health coverage I can finally get the help I’ve needed for so long.
The mental health care in this country really needs to change. The stigma behind getting help needs to change. There are so many people have spoken to (including family members) that honestly believe that getting help is a sign of weakness. 

I was a part of that thought process for the longest time. I know now that there is nothing wrong with going to a therapist. Just like our bodies, sometimes our minds need extra help to get healthy.

I hope that if you are struggling that you are able to get the help you need. I hope that you are able to reach out, that someone reaches out to you. You are worth everything, stay alive. ❤️🧡💜💙
