Engage, Encourage

Friends 1.jpgYou think you know the story… think again.

People in wheelchairs aren’t sitting there feeling sorry for themselves.  But they are sitting there.

We need to be 100x more organised and self-aware than ‘functioning’ people to get by.  We’re an incredible bunch.

Likewise people with mental health issues are just like you – only mad.

All my friends with mental illnesses, from bi-polar to schizophrenia to personality disorders, are golden, and it takes some emotion juggling to manage that.

Engage, encourage.

    Amazing post!! I could not agree with you more! I have been trying to help my husband that has been suffering from depression for a while now. I know all I can really do is listen. My mother is bipolar and did not want to admit until a few years ago. It is SO important to encourage people instead of discourage!!!
