we are definitely our own heros, its nice to see in other in history that ther are other nice huble, brilliant o unique humans, but yes we are our own heros, totally agree. We all have our cross to bear and we hav eto get across the finish line is, wherever that is, its different fro everyone.
I do like reading about anyone that's overcome or achieved, my background makes me honour civil rights leaders and women who have made it through odds and become leaders in their fields, whether that's writers, public speakers or ancient queens, or ruby wax. I find reading or remembering aboit them sometines gives me encouragement to continue.. but I don't idolise anyone, but do recognise strengths and determination
were not alone here but It also helps me to remember I'm me here, meaning that my individual reasons, fears, problems, issues, happiness, sadness, pain, rage is all volid, or else yiu can start to look and think well I'm not as bad as such and such why am I complaining, but we each have our own journey, and acceptance is key and honesty is key. and I now many of us probably have smiled through pain for many years, I know I have, and probably still do, its only in forum or councelling that I express more, not even all).. smiling through pain is not allways good I don't think, especially is your nit seeking answers to recover. sometimes we do need to break down to let go some of the burnden, its a nother pressure to put chin up, put best foot forward, kee calm and carry on. I think readon for higher number in mental health is because our society puts pressure on us in so many ways and has normalised stress so people think having a high stress level to deal with is normal, and wont distress after, many people who not diagnosed are often ticking timebombs, just needing a moment to take of the mask and chill,
sorry may have gone totally off topic, iv been awake for 6 hours now after ony having 2 hours sleep, nothing to do with MH, its to do with teething baby..
anyway take care
