Dear Reta Jayne: I know life is all “lollipops & glitter” right now. . . (Okay, maybe not. Maybe it’s emotional and angst-ridden, as most teenage years are. . . But, trust me, honey, in comparison to some of the things you go through later, it really is a beautiful time.) Either way, I need you to know, in less than six months, you & your family are going to go through...
Mental health is an important topic that gets swept under the rug far too often. People do not talk about these types of illnesses — or even their thought processes! — simply out of fear of being judged or misunderstood. It is totally understandable, but this needs to stop.
There will be LESS of a stigma surrounding these topics if more of us can find the courage to SHARE our struggles, insecurities, & hopes & dreams. So, Confidence & Chaos is tackling this issue, rather than waiting for someone else to jump.
Thus, find posts that pertain to mental health or retraining our brains & thought processes here.
