It is world mental health day and as any other day - i just wanted a thread where we can all emphasis the importance of remembering to take care of yourself Everyday. And just asking how people are, and that it is okay to not be okay. No one should ever feel ashamed to talk about how their mental health is affecting them. 🌸 <3

I try to practice what i preach, not just today but everyday and today I have asked my sister twice about how she feels. And everydayi am going to find a way to take care of myself. I hope will all do the same

Kindness begins from the understanding that we all struggle.

    This is such a lovely thread @Shaunie! Thanks so much for putting it together :) 
    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    This is lovely :heart:
    " And everywhere I am, there you'll be, your love made me make it through, oh I owe so much to you "
    " So I say thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing, thanks for all the joy they're bringing, who can live without it, I ask in all honestly what would life be? Without a song or a dance, what are we? So I say thank you for the music, for giving it to me "

    Lovely thread you have created here @Shaunie ; <3
    Very true indeed and awareness needs to be spread about mental health as you never know what is happening in someone’s life. 

    Thank you for this thread, it is beautiful! 

    Remember, if your struggling with mental health or fighting a battle - your so strong and you can do this. Keep fighting, things will get better just hold on a little longer.
